Two Baltimore ladies and Matisse 

The Nasher museum is hosting a fantastic show of works from the Baltimore Museum of Art. The exhibition features pieces from Matisse, Picasso, Gauguin, Renoir, Van Gogh, Pissarro, and Courbet among others.

These works came to Baltimore as the titles alludes through the efforts of two women, sisters, Dr. Claribel Cone and Miss Etta Cone. These two cultural visionaries, according to the Nasher's website...
began buying art directly out of the Parisian studios of avant-garde artists in 1905. At a time when critics disparaged Matisse, and Pablo Picasso was virtually unknown, the Cones followed their passions and amassed one of the world’s greatest art collections.

Striped Robe, Fruit, and Anemones---Matisse

This week there are two special events in conjunction with the exhibit.

Wednesday, at 6.30pm in the Cameron Village Library, in Raleigh, Juline Chevalier, Curator of Education at the Nasher and Dr. Marianne Wardle Ph.D, Coordinator of Academic Programs at the Nasher, give an "Art with the Experts" talk entitled: “Collecting Matisse and Modern Masters.”

Thursday night ticket holders for the exhibit at the Nasher Museum itself, can attend a free wine tasting there at 6pm. Join Noel Sherr, owner of Cave Taureau (The Bull’s Cellar) which opened just last month in downtown Durham, he has personally selected six French wines for the evening.
