DESCRIPTION

Henri Matisse visited the Bay Area just once, in 1931, before setting sail for Tahiti. However, the French master's art and legend in this region stretch back to 1906, just after the great earthquake, when the American expatriates Sarah and Michael Stein returned home from Paris to check on their properties, bringing Matisse paintings along with them in their luggage. The Steins' local presentation of the artist’s brightly colored canvases—the first of the artist's works to be seen in the United States—launched the region's longstanding passion for the Matisse and his art.
