I love your e-mail address! Speaking of Matisse....I saw a FANTASTIC
Matisse exhibit at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC that goes through
September. The curator has taken many of the fabrics and tile that influenced
Matisse's magnificent patterns in his paintings. With the beautiful patterns in
fabrics and clothing side by side with his spectacular paintings, this exhibit is
really worth seeing! Matisse spent a fortune buying his models their
clothing, and that was on display, as well. It was fun to see the actual "the
purple robe" next to the painting of the model in the purple robe, for example,
and also to see the actual Islamic patterns in cloths that he painted on his
Susan on Long Island
