Docent Lecture: "Intimate Impressionism from the National Gallery of Art", by Maureen O'Brien

Renoir and Cezanne paintings
May 24, 2014 - 1:00pm2:00pm

Intimate Impressionism includes nearly 70 paintings by 19th-century avant-garde artists. The exhibition features a selection of intimately scaled Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings, 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. Many paintings in the exhibition were displayed in domestic interiors, and they often became gifts shared among friends.

National Gallery founder Andrew Mellon’s two children, Paul Mellon and Ailsa Mellon Bruce, were also collectors and major patrons of the National Gallery. They were both drawn to the luminous, color-saturated paintings of the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists, and they each amassed a significant collection of these works to enjoy in their homes, while always intending to give the pictures to the nation. Dr. Mary Morton will discuss some of the highlights of their collecting, with particular attention paid to Ailsa Mellon Bruce, whose activities are less well known than her brother's.
