The New Collectors


Matisse

Modern Women, Modern Art, Modern Museums

In 1913, the Armory Show introduced modern art to a mostly unsuspecting public. The works were panned and banned.  A new breed of women patrons, however, embraced this new direction in art and began collecting in earnest.  The American public would become the benefactors of their collections.

Join museum educator, Linda Young, as she continues her focus on women collectors and the museums that would benefit from their discerning eyes. Baltimore sisters Etta and Claribel Cone amassed an impressive collection of paintings by Matisse and Picasso. New York socialite Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney encouraged emerging American artists, eventually opening her own museum of contemporary art. And a trio of progressive women patrons led the effort to open New York’s Museum of Modern Art.

Class size is limited to 30
