Again this summer, the museum is privileged to present a select group of outstanding Impressionist paintings that offer visitors a glimpse of the brilliant artistic experimentation that roiled the established art world from the late 1880s through the turn of the 20th century. Returning are Impressionist works by Edouard Manet, Vincent Van Gogh, and Henri Matisse. Manet was highly skilled in the translation of the qualities of light and atmosphere into pigment and canvas while Matisse demonstrated his dynamic foray into color and modernist aesthetics. Van Gogh’s expressive works reveal his masterful manipulation of materials in the service of emotion.
This exhibition is organized by the Palm Springs Art Museum.
