When looking at someone’s collection, I always seek to understand their choices—why they liked certain things and how that may be a reflection of their life.
Collecting Matisse and Modern Masters: The Cone Sisters of Baltimore includes several photographs that depict the Cone sisters’ lives between 1903 and the 1940s. We would like a glimpse of your family’s life during those years. Share your family photographs from between 1903 and 1949. Email photographs to email@example.com. A selection of photos will be shared online. You can view our gallery of submissions on flickr.
The wonderful thing about art and exhibitions is that you get a completely different experience with every visit, depending on what details you focus on. If you have already seen the Matisse exhibition, I challenge you to come visit again and see how your second visit can differ from the first!
We didn’t come to the Nasher Museum that day to crash the kids’ table. We came to see some cool works of art and found ourselves with an unexpected opportunity.
We are still smiling over Geoffrey Mock’s story about his encounter, at age 9, with Matisse’s The Pink Nude. We’re thrilled that students from all over the Triangle are creating and sharing their drawings and paintings of work by Matisse and Picasso for NBC17′s “Cool Schools” morning segment, as part of the station’s partnership with the museum.
