How prominent was "Persian" work in the show? Or Moroccan (Matisse was strongly inspired by such)?

Ed Cone

Jim, I'm not sure what you would include in those categories. The show includes a couple of his odalisques, including one of my favorites:

Seated odalisque
But it's a wide-ranging sampler of the collection, with pieces by artists who worked far from that idiom (e.g., Renoir) and Matisse paintings with very different feels (e.g., the Pink Nude), along with some sculpture and the fabrics.

Jim Langer

Thanks, Ed. I was wondering if the collectors themselves bought and hence were there such Near-Eastern/North African fabrics (or maybe ceramics or metal work) displayed alongside the paintings. I'll check out the museum online.
