Degas, Monet, Renoir artworks in Denver’s “Passport to Paris” exhibit

PanARMENIAN.Net - Passport to Paris exhibition is currently on display at Denver Art Museum, the museum website said.

Passport to Paris brings together works from the rock stars of the art world—Edgar Degas, Camille Pissarro, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, and more—as well as a rare opportunity to view 11 works by Claude Monet at one time. This exhibition's trio of shows—Court to Cafe, Nature as Muse, and Drawing Room—focuses on French art from the late 1600s to early 1900s and explores changes in art and society during three important centuries in art history.

Revealing how art mirrors society, the exhibit conveys a sense of the changes that took place from the time of the powerful and absolute monarchy of Louis XIV to the individualistic café society.

Court to Cafe features 50 masterpieces from the collection of the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford, Connecticut including works by Nicolas Poussin, François Boucher, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul Cézanne, and Vincent van Gogh.

Nature as Muse displays 36 stunning landscapes by nineteenth-century impressionist artists including Berthe Morisot, Camille Pissarro, and Alfred Sisley. It is the first time artworks from the private collection of Frederic C. Hamilton will be on display to the public.

Drawing Room, the third exhibition in Passport to Paris, showcases approximately 39 works-on-paper by some of the most celebrated French masters, including Jacques-Louis David, Théodore Géricault, and Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres.
