Docent from the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston presents Incomparable Impressionism from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston

For the first time, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, is lending some 100 of the most significant paintings and works on paper from its renowned Impressionist collection for an exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, its only U.S. venue. 

The extraordinary collection of French Impressionist and Post-Impressionist work traces the evolution of the radical movement, from its roots in the novel, naturalistic landscapes of Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, Charles François Daubigny, and other painters of the Barbizon School; to the early “optical color” experimentations in plein-air landscape painting by Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, and Alfred Sisley; to the frank depictions of modern urban life by Mary Cassatt, Edgar Degas, Edouard Manet, and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.

Among the highlights is a display of 16 canvases by Monet featuring his most beloved sites. An integral aspect of the exhibition is a fascinating selection of works on paper showcasing the artists’ working methods.

 


This event is a collaboration between Little Falls Village and Friendship Heights Neighbors Network. TOUR IS FOR LFV AND FHNN MEMBERS & VOLUNTEERS ONLY.
