The Impressionists and 20th-Century Masters: From Monet and Renoir to Picasso
This event has ended.
This exhibition introduces the unique qualities and appeal of the Impressionist painters and masters of twentieth-century art, mainly through works in the Bridgestone Museum of Art.
The works by Impressionists and Post-Impressionists such as Renoir, Monet, Cezanne, and Gauguin, as well as by leading twentieth-century artists such as Picasso, Matisse, and Rouault, are eloquent reminders of the diversity and richness of modern painting. Of particular note are twenty works from Picasso's Vollard Suite (on exhibit January 25 - April 16), as well as all twenty works from Matisse's Jazz (on exhibit April 19 - July 10), two important print series that have not been featured at the Museum for some time. Also, viewers will doubtless be powerfully moved by the works of such Japanese painters as Fujishima Takeji, Saeki Yuzo, and Fujita Tsuguharu.
Presenting over two hundred works in various media - oils, watercolors, drawings, and prints -this exhibition enables us to reconfirm the joy of looking at art and recognizing anew its richness, depth, and breadth.
