Henri Matisse, photographed by Edward Steichen for Vanity Fair, January 1915.


There was more quarreling about Matisse, shown here at work in Paris, than about any other painter of the epoch. His Nude with the Blue Leg, shown at the International Exhibition of 1913, had “surprised New York, disgusted Chicago, and horrified Boston.”
—Diana Edkins Richardson, 1982

Patrizia Polese

Born in 1973, lives and works in Treviso. After linguistic maturity, he graduated from the School of Applied Arts of Castello Sforzesco in Milan, with a specialization in the art of weaving (1995). After a long experience in the field of restoration (Milan-Venice from 1993 to 1997), the passion for art and textiles led her to pursue research, from everyday life, the transitory and ephemeral.

She attended a three-year course at the ‘Scuola triennale d’Arte Applicata’ (School of Visual Arts) based at the Castello Sforzesco in Milan and obtained a qualification in weaving on haute lisse loom (a vertical frame loom used to weave tapestries and rugs).
