Matisse & Others On View At Nasher Museum
The Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University is the home of a new Matisse exhibit. It focuses on works collected by two sisters from Baltimore. Sarah Schroth is the senior curator and interim director of the Nasher. She says the Cone sisters made many trips to Paris and were friends with Matisse. They also met Picasso in 1905.
Sarah Schroth: He was doing Gertrude Stein's famous portrait and Etta Cone went with Gertrude to Picasso's studio and, you know, it was filthy and a mess, you know and he was totally unknown and she bought two drawings from him and those are in the exhibition.
Schroth says Collecting Matisse and Modern Masters: The Cone Sisters of Baltimore features 50 works by Matisse, Picasso, Renoir and others. It's open until February 10th.
