Back to the Met

Henri Matisse, Still Life with Purro (Porron), 1904

Today's tour of the New York Arts Exchange group takes us back to the Matisse exhibition to finish the last few rooms.  We were so engrossed in the first half that we decided to stop at the end of the two hours and return on December 19th.  This opportunity to see several Matisse paintings and drawings arranged by theme presents a rare occasion to study various versions in person.

I recently received a question about the Still Life with Purro.  What is a purro?  Is is a Spanish porrón.
