75 Reasons to Live: Carrie Pilto on Henri Matisse
Carrie Pilto is SFMOMA Project Assistant Curator on The Steins Collect: Matisse, Picasso, and The Parisian Avant-Garde, opening May 21, 2011. More on Matisse, with links to many of SFMOMA’s multimedia features on the artist, here.
I loved this talk by Carrie; full of real-life and engaging realities. Wonderful. Thank you, Carrie.
errata: Matisse painted La Femme au chapeau (Woman with a Hat) in 1905 (not 1903). Harriet Levy and Alice B. Toklas, natives of San Francisco, followed Sarah and Michael Stein to PARIS (of course) in 1907. Apologies for any confusion. Carrie
Lots of enthusiasm for this lively speech about Matisse. I’m a Matisse (and the Fauvism style) fan myself and he’s been an inspiration for my own painting for years but this brings an interesting new light on this period of his life. The dream of all painter, having clients fighting (elegantly in this case) over their paintings…
Félicitations, keep up the good work, looking forward for the next blog!
Great talk! I love the anecdote about the new note. It’s fun to hear about back stories like that.
jeepers…carrie is cool but I think that you’re sharing too much information…
