Monet To Matisse, at the Jepson
Monet to Matisse: Masterworks of French Impressionism featured significant works of art by the most influential artists to work in late 19th- and early 20th-century France, including Claude Monet, Mary Cassatt, Edgar Degas, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul Gauguin, and Henri Matisse. From plein air landscapes to genre scenes of modern life in Paris, the 30 paintings in the exhibition illustrate the radical innovations launched by artists we know today as Impressionists and Post-Impressionists. It was especially interesting to go and view these works of art after seeing the screening of At Eternity's Gate. Seeing the character of Paul Gauguin and Vincent Van Gogh react and to learn more about there relationship at fellow artist and friends and then to go and view his and his contemporaries work was a nice combination bringing a new context and understanding to these works of art.
