“There is no intellectual or emotional substitute for the experience of confronting an original masterpiece.” - Paul Mellon, 1983
Offering 74 works by 19th-and 20th-century masters, Van Gogh, Monet, Degas and Their Times: The Mellon Collection of French Art from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts showcases French Impressionist paintings, along with masterpieces from every important school of French art—from Romanticism through to the School of Paris. Taken together, these works exemplify the Mellons’ personal vision and highly original collecting strategies, which provide a context for understanding this unique collection of French art. The exhibition includes works by Pierre Bonnard, Paul Cézanne, Edgar Degas, Paul Gauguin, Édouard Manet, Claude Monet, Henri Rousseau, and Vincent van Gogh.
This exhibition is organized by the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. Its presentation in Jackson, Mississippi, is sponsored by the Robert M. Hearin Support Foundation.
