Ad Libs: A muse to Matisse, a patron of art

Original post made by Rebecca Wallace, arts & entertainment editor of the Palo Alto Weekly, on Jul 6, 2011

The Almanac, one of our sister papers, published a nice arts story this week about Sarah Stein: art collector, art-school patron and leader of art salons in her homes in Paris and Palo Alto. A friend and patron to Matisse -- and sister-in-law to Gertrude Stein -- Sarah is a focus in her own right of a current show at SFMOMA, "The Steins Collect: Matisse, Picasso and the Parisian Avant-Garde."
