Light and Lovely Coastal Towns --- Day 4/112

Walk: Sausalito
Distance: Just a little; a few blocks

Henri Matisse - Les toits de Collioure
Henri Matisse, Les Toits de Collioure, 1905, 23.4" x 29" oil on canvas (Hermitage Museum)

Lunch today with a friend in Sausalito. To Ciwt Sausalito has a similar feeling to Matisse's beloved Collioure, the joyously light-filled place where he first encountered rich, vibrant color and was set free to eventually - with Picasso - give birth to modern art.
