The best thing about having this blog is being able to share experiences that people would not have seen if it were not posted.  One such experience is the Cone Collection of Art housed at The Baltimore Museum of Art in Maryland.  I had never heard of the Cone Sisters, their collection or The Baltimore Museum of Art.   As luck would have it I grabbed the local "things to do" magazine when I arrived at my hotel.  Took up camp on the porcelain and began to read about what was in and around Baltimore.  A museum caught my eye as they claimed the largest collection of paintings from Henri Matisse in the world.  Wow...I thought.  If I get time this is tops on my list to visit.  Well the rain storm hit Baltimore that day and our outdoor plans were quickly abandoned.  Headed to The Baltimore Museum of Art to see the Cone Collection.  Upon arrival in pouring rain we were happily greeted by a smiling employee who handed us a brochure and said the exhibit and Museum were free.  I asked about the Matisse Collection and she informed me that most of the collection was out on the road in various museums.  There were a few however upstairs on the second floor she said.  While a bit bummed out that I would not see a hundred paintings by Matisse, my bummer soon faded to joy as I was surrounded by works from Picasso, Monet, Van Gogh, Cezanne, Gauguin, Renoir, Pissarro, Suerat and Degas.  My goodness...all of my favorite French Impressionist were here and this is a fucking private collection.  These gals from Baltimore enjoyed this collection in their home!  I was totally blown away.  Click links below to view posts of French Impressionists:
