10. Collecting Matisse and Modern Masters: The Cone Sisters of Baltimore
Location: The Jewish Museum New York
Date: May 6 to September 25, 2011
With a collection built from the spoils of a denim empire, the Cone Sisters of Baltimore are largely responsible for introducing Matisse and Picasso to America. The exhibition, which celebrated their collection and relationship with the artists, included some stunning art… and even more staggering ephemera. We'd not seen a cool business card until we caught a glimpse of Matisse's personal calling card.
