The Steins Collect at Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York
|Stein was a personal friend of Picasso|
Lesson #1 from Gertrude, in her own words to Ernest Hemingway: “Buy the people of your own age. There are always good new serious painters.”
|The steins collected this artwork from the Fauvist first exhibition.|
Lesson #2 from Leo Stein: A limited budget is an excuse to be creative.
|A highlight of the exhibition is this self portrait of Matisse|
Lesson #3 from Sarah and Michael Stein: Treat the artists you love like family.
|This painting by Matisse did not appear in the exhibit but appeared in a photograph of the Steins’ apartment so was once part of their collection.|
The Steins Collect: Matisse, Picasso and the Parisian Avant-Garde” continues through June 3 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art; (212) 535-7710, metmuseum.org.
