Sarah Stein (left), one of a family of influential art collectors that included her husband, Michael, and his brother and sister Leo and Gertrude Stein, achieved an intimate connection with Henri Matisse. Acting as an early patron, enduring admirer, and close friend to the artist, Matisse purportedly said of Sarah, “She knows my paintings better than I do.”
Matisse arduously worked on this depiction of his friend, before arriving at a painting that some believe reveals Sarah’s true likeness. Sarah, on the other hand, thought she looked “too French.”
Matisse from SFMOMA is now on view.

Really excited to finally share a story I shot earlier this year for the November issue of Dwell, out now.
Architect Peter Liang’s recently remodeled home on Bernal Hill in San Francisco has a green roof that’s populated with local plants, seeded by birds and the wind, and irrigated by seasonal rain and dew.
Huge thanks to Julia and Anna for the assignment, those two are just the bestest. I’ll be sharing more photos, stories and outtakes this week.
For now, you can check out my edit here.
