Lady in hat back in Grand Palais exhibit
Question of the Day
PARIS (AP) - Matisse and Picasso masterpieces from the art collection of Gertrude Stein and her family are going on display at Paris’ Grand Palais.
It’s the same venue where Matisse’s “Femme Au Chapeau,” a classic portrait of a woman gone wild with color, scandalized visitors during an art exhibit in 1905.
The Steins left San Francisco and set up in Paris and became the patrons of often obscure and cutting edge artists at the turn of the 20th century _ like Picasso, who couldn’t find a gallery to exhibit his work.
The Paris show, opening Wednesday, brings together masters like Matisse and Picasso, Renoir, Degas, Cezanne or Manet, artists who defined modern art.
Along the way, it tells the story of the important role of the Steins.
