'Monet To Matisse' At The Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute
The exhibit - Monet to Matisse at the Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute in Utica features more than 60 paintings and pastel drawings from the renowned collection of the Dixon Gallery and Gardens in Memphis, Tennessee.
The exhibition includes landscapes, portraits, interiors, and still-lifes by leaders of French Impressionism. Monet to Matisse is an expansive view of nineteenth-century French painting and its influences. It is a story of artistic freedom and the shift from stilted academic historicism to near abstraction.
The exhibit runs through November 29th. Anna D'Ambrosio, Director of the MWPAI Museum of Art joins us.
