An Exhibition of French Painting
April 6, 1954 - April 27, 1954
This exhibition centers around the paintings of the French Impressionists, a group of men who dedicated their art to the portrayal of life as they knew it through everyday experience and the world as they saw it with unprejudiced and highly trained vision. Includes works by Camille Corot, Edgar Degas, Claude Monet, Auguste Renoir, Camille Pissarro, Henri De Toulouse-Lautrec, Maurice Utrillo and Maurice Vlaminck. Although these men are all strong individuals we can sense in their art a common feeling for color and the quality of paint that was part of this great tradition of French painting.
