On Saturday Marina and I ventured to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art to see the Stein's Collection. Gertrude Stein and Family "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."
These are my favorites.
Henri Matisse, Canal du Midi, 1898, Oil on cardboard
Henri Matisse, Flowers, 1907, Oil on cardboard
Hans Purrmann, Still Life with Vases, Oranges, and Lemons, 1908, Oil on canvas.
That day I wore my hair in Heidi braids and after the museum we came home to drink tea, eat blueberries, and play Scrabble (of course).
