First Retrospective of Elisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun, France’s Last Great Royal Portraitist, Opens on February 15

Elisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun (1755–1842) is one of the finest 18th-century French painters and among the most important of all women artists. An autodidact with exceptional skills as a portraitist, she achieved success in France and abroad during one of the most eventful, turbulent periods in European history. Vigée Le Brun: Woman Artist in Revolutionary France is the first retrospective and only the second exhibition devoted to this artist in modern times. The 80 works on view at the Metropolitan Museum will be paintings and a few pastels from European and American public and private collections. [Read more…]

FINEST PAINTINGS BY IMPRESSIONIST GUSTAVE CAILLEBOTTE AT THE KIMBELL ART MUSEUM THIS FALL

Gustave Caillebotte: The Painter’s Eye November 8, 2015–February 14, 2016 On view in the Renzo Piano Pavilion

Fort Worth’s Kimbell Museum does it again, with a jaw dropping retrospective of a hugely important, and surprisingly unknown Impressionist. Gustave Caillebotte is, hands down, my favorite artist. His career began with failure – rejection by the Salon in 1875, when he submitted the above painting The Floor Scrapers to the French Government’s annual elite art exhibition. The painting was considered vulgar (as IF-) and the perspective unsettling (again, seriously?!).  [Read more…]

Picasso Sculpture
September 14, 2015–February 07, 2016

The Museum of Modern Art’s fall exhibit of 150 Picasso sculptures is one worth seeing; for all of his fame, the sculpture is a relatively unknown part of his entire collection. That he was a self-taught sculptor becomes apparent as you see these very personal works crafted with a sense of improvisation and ingenuity. MoMA is the sole venue so don’t miss this opportunity.

Picasso Sculpture is a sweeping survey of Pablo Picasso’s profoundly innovative and influential work in three dimensions. The largest museum exhibition of Picasso’s sculptures to take place in the United States in nearly half a century, the exhibition brings together around 150 sculptures from Picasso’s entire career via loans from major public and private collections in the U.S. and abroad, with the largest selection of works coming from the Musée national Picasso–Paris. With many works on view for the first time in the U.S., the exhibition provides an opportunity to explore a rarely seen aspect of Picasso’s large and prolific career.  [Read more…]
