Stein collection at Grand Palais

On till 16 January at the Grand Palais is the recreated collection of Leo, Sarah and Gertrude Stein with paintings assembled from the major museums in the US, notably San Franciso's MOMA. Leo favoured Matisse; Gerturde Picasso, so it is an astonishing group of paintings from their early work, along with similar from Cezanne, Manguin, Bonnard and others. My favourites were Picasso's portraits of women with quarter of brie noses, the well known (but mocked at the 1905 salon) Matisse, Woman with a Hat. 12 Euros well spent.
