THE STEINS COLLECT Matisse, Picasso, and the Parisian Avant-Garde

May 21 – September 06, 2011

American expatriates in bohemian Paris when the 20th century was young, the Steins — writer Gertrude, her brothers Leo and Michael, and Michael’s wife, Sarah — were among the first to recognize the talents of avant-garde painters like Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso. Through their friendship and patronage, they helped spark an artistic revolution. This landmark exhibition draws on holdings around the world to reunite the Steins’ unparalleled collections of modern art, bringing together, for the first time in a generation, dozens of works by Matisse, Picasso, Paul Cézanne, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec,Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and many others. Artworks on view include Matisse’s Blue Nude (Baltimore Museum of Art) and Self-Portrait (Statens Museum, Copenhagen), and Picasso’s famous portrait, Gertrude Stein (Metropolitan Museum of Art).
