May 31, 2018, 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM @ Muscatine Art Center Music Room
French Moderns: Monet to Matisse, 1850 – 1950, an exhibition organized by the Brooklyn Museum, will be on view at the Figge Art Museum from October 6, 2018 to January 7, 2019. It features works by all the leading Impressionists—Monet, Cezanne, Renoir and Manet--and some lesser colleagues, such as Morisot, Sisley and Caillebotte, as well as artists from England, Italy and Germany who aligned themselves with the movement. Several of the artists are represented in the French Impressionism collection of the Muscatine Art Center. This 45-minute art talk offers an introduction to the traveling exhibition, with background on some of the artists and their styles.
