The Pierre & Tana Matisse Foundation

The Pierre and Tana Matisse Foundation was established in 1995 by Maria-Gaetana von Spreti Matisse, wife of the late art dealer and collector, Pierre Matisse. Following her death in 2001, Tana—as she was known to her friends—left the bulk of her estate to the Foundation. As a result, the most significant assets of the Foundation are the works from Tana and Pierre Matisse’s remarkable collection of art.
