My birthday treat was a visit to SFMOMA to see the exhibit THE STEINS COLLECT:  Matisse, Picasso, and the Parisian Avant-Garde.  Alysanne, Kathy and I headed to San Francisco with great expectations.  It was a superb exhibit, taking up almost all of one floor.  The photographs of her “salon” through the years was fascinating.  There was so much to see and so much to read that it deserves a second visit.  I bought the catalog as a souvenir and reference.

We followed our visit with lunch at the MOMA Cafe – always a delicious treat.
