Intimate Impressionism includes nearly 70 Impressionist and Post-Impressionist still lifes, portraits, and landscapes whose charm and fluency invite close scrutiny. Included are significant works by Édouard Manet, Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Camille Pissarro, Georges Seurat, and Vincent van Gogh. Mabny of the intimately scaled paintings in the exhibition were displayed in domestic interiors, and they often became gifts shared among friends.
