The 19th Century in European and American Art
February 7 @ 9:00 am - April 1 @ 6:00 pm$8 – $15
In newly installed galleries, view about 85 artworks from the museum’s collection by Claude Monet, Berthe Morisot, Paul Cézanne, Édouard Manet, Willard Leroy Metcalf, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Childe Hassam and others that tell a story about one of the most important times in art history.
The exhibit features mostly French paintings and, in particular, landscapes. This is not accidental, as Paris, became the art center of Europe during the 1800s, and landscape, once considered among the least prestigious genres in painting for its lack of moral content, flourished as one of the most expressive and collected subjects.
