Join the thousands who have come to see the Vancouver Art Gallery’s latest exhibit, Collecting Matisse and Modern Masters: The Cone Sisters of Baltimore. On view for only a few more weeks until September 30, 2012!
At the turn of the twentieth century, sisters Etta and Claribel Cone began to amass a collection of 3,000 objects, forming one of the world’s greatest holdings of early European Modernism. This exhibition provides a rare opportunity to view nearly 50 exceptional works from their stunning collection, including artists as Paul Gauguin, Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse, all of which was donated to The Baltimore Museum of Art in 1949. The highlight of the Cone Collection is a group of works by Henri Matisse, making The Baltimore Museum of Art’s Matisse collection the largest and most comprehensive in the world.
“an extraordinary collection…” The Globe and Mail
“generous and gratifying” Georgia Straight
“a fascinating story about two women and the artists they meet” The Vancouver Sun
“much more than a look at works from a who’s who of early European modern artists…it’s a look at how a pair of passionate women brought some of the most interesting and important art to America”. The Province
This exhibition is organized by The Baltimore Museum of Art, The Jewish Museum, New York, and the Vancouver Art Gallery.
