Visitors are invited to a program of talks inaugurating the opening of the Kimbell Art Museum’s special exhibition The Age of Impressionism: Great French Paintings from the Clark, on Saturday, March 10, from 10 a.m.–12:30 p.m., in the Darnell Street auditorium, across Van Cliburn Way from the Museum.
This free program features three leading scholars of the period who will discuss aspects of the artists’ engagement with landscape, with the figure, and with still life. Through stunning examples from the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute by such masters as Renoir, Monet, Degas, Pissarro, Manet, Morisot, and Cassat, these experts will bring to life the new––indeed revolutionary––vision that the Impressionists brought to time-honored motifs.
Presenters include Richard R. Brettell, Margaret McDermott Distinguished Chair of Art and Aesthetics, School of the Arts and the Humanities, The University of Texas at Dallas; Joachim Pissarro, Bershad Professor of Art History and Director of the Hunter College Galleries, Hunter College, City University of New York; Kathleen Adler, independent art historian and former director of education at the National Gallery, London; and George T. M. Shackelford, deputy director of the Kimbell Art Museum.
A full program schedule is available at www.kimbellart.org. No reservations required. Priority admission reserved for Kimbell members who present a current membership card at least 20 minutes before the program begins.
