I hope that the number of those of you who know the answer to the second question above equals or surpasses the number of those of you who know the answer to the first question.

If you do know the identity of the ladies and gent above, I’d like to ask this follow-up question: do you think the ladies may have made the man?

I’d love to hear your opinion as to what extent the duex dames’ interest and funds may have influenced the artist’s career and impact on art history.

Last, if you’re a Research Triangle area local, don’t miss catching the “Collecting Matisse and Modern Masters: The Cone Sisters of Baltimore” exhibit at Duke University’s Nasher Musuem of Art before the exhibit concludes on February 10.

I had the pleasure of doing so today, and I can attest that viewing the works of Matisse, Van Gogh and Picasso up close and personal was a treat.  My thanks to Claribel and Etta for providing the opportunity.
