The Elise S. Haas Bequest

Modern Art from Matisse to Marini
March 23–June 2, 2013

Elise S. Haas’s art collection reflected a personal sensibility cultivated through years of looking at art and even making work in the studio. This exhibition sheds new light on the formation and legacy of Haas’s collection by paying tribute to her exceptional bequest to SFMOMA — a gift that featured more than thirty paintings, sculptures, and works on paper by Henri Matisse, Marino Marini, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Pablo Picasso, among others.
