• Dear Susan,
    I read once that Van Gogh never sold a painting in his lifetime, which is heartbreaking if true. Luckily Matisse lived to see his success and you're right, this is a great reason to take a run down to lovely Nice! Maybe we'll meet up for drinks at Negresco!
    All the Best!

  • I really enjoyed reading your posts on Matisse. It was very historically informative as well as very current in relation to what is going on right now. It makes me want to book a ticket to France right now! Thank you for sharing. I am looking forward to more!

  • Van Gogh's story is heart wrenching for so many reasons, isn't it? Add he lived as long a Matisse did….hmmm.

    This event looks so good~I will keep my fingers crossed that I get to go! And a rendezvous at Negresco would be great!

    Thanks for your note and, as always, for keeping your finger on the pulse of Provence!

  • Hi Katarzyna,
    Thanks so much for the positive feedback. I would love to be going over right now, too! I am glad that you have subscribed to TMT and I will look forward to reading more of your thoughts.

    This post is so informative! We will soon be in Nice (on OUR way to Italy from Marseilles) and hope to take in at least some of this exciting event. I also really like Matisse. Many thanks. Patty H.

  • All right, all right, I'll go! Rather that it was with you. We can rent scoots to visit all the sites. Bis.

    It was nice to be "visiting" Nice, where so many famous visited. The story was off to a good start with the familiar portrait of the Sleeping Woman. The pictures were lovely and a reminder that there are some things that we never tire of seeing. I love his simple style.
