Faces of Impressionism explores the remarkable variety of approaches to portrait making between 1860 and 1910, the decades that witnessed the birth of Impressionism, its artistic maturity, the challenges issued to it and its eventual influence in the first decade of the 20th century. The exhibition will feature masterworks by the central figures in the Impressionist movement—notably Edgar Degas, Auguste Renoir, Paul Cézanne, Camille Pissarro, Berthe Morisot and Claude Monet—as well as renowned paintings by the artists who preceded them, such as Édouard Manet, and those who followed them, including Paul Gauguin and Vincent van Gogh.
Admission to this remarkable exhibition is $18 for adults, $16 for seniors age 60 and over, $16 for students with an ID, $14 for children ages 6 - 11 and free for children under 6 and for Museum members. Admission is half-price on Tuesdays and after 5:00 p.m. on Fridays.
