In the April 26 issue, Michael Kimmelman writes, "A glamorous, occasionally revelatory affair, sprawled across close to a dozen big rooms in the museum, the exhibition lavishes attention on Gertrude’s remarkable brothers, Leo and Michael, and her equally remarkable sister-in-law, Sarah. Michael and Sarah, husband and wife, who created a salon of their own on the rue de Fleurus, became Matisse’s greatest devotees, collecting and inspiring groundbreaking work and sponsoring his short-lived art academy."
The Met is open Tuesday-Thursday from 9:30 AM-5:30 PM, Friday and Saturday from 9:30 AM-9 PM, and Sunday from 9:30 AM-9 PM.
