Driving through Maryland Baltimore, I suddenly remembered the sister’s Cone (Claribel and Etta) art collection, which is on the view at the Baltimore Art Museum. I heard about them buying art from Gertrude Stein, who, together with her brother Leo Stein, were famous collectors in the late 19th century. ‘Gertrude, who later became a famous writer and collector of modern art, often offered her paintings to the Cone sisters when she needed money.  

Visiting a museum is always a treat, and this visit was very special. 

The first thing I noticed when I entered the museum was how bright and spacious it was. The architecture is very modern, with large windows and high ceilings. All of the rooms are on one level, which makes it easy to navigate around without having to go up or down stairs. 

The Cone Sisters Collection, located right by the entrance, has many different types of art, ranging from sculptures to paintings to photography. My favorite piece was the Blue Nude by Henri Matisse. I really liked how it was painted in shades of blue, green, and white and that it had a lot of movement in it because of the way he used different colors on different parts of the painting. It also has a lot of detail, which made me feel like I could look at it forever because there was always something interesting happening within each part of the painting.

 The Baltimore Museum of Art is an excellent museum that is worth a visit. The museum has a wide range of exhibits, including modern art, ancient artifacts, and contemporary works.

There are more to these that have blown me away! I hope you can visit this amazing museum.
