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.

The 17th century was a period of trade—and espionage—with China. The object of desire was porcelain, "white gold," and the secrets of its manufacture. This lecture looks at the Museums' collection of beautiful porcelain in historical context.

Guest Lecture: "Ailsa Mellon Bruce: Collector and Patron of the National Gallery," Dr. Mary Morton, National Gallery of Art

Mary Morton
March 29, 2014 - 2:00pm3:00pm

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.

April 19, 2014 - 2:15pm3:15pm

Celebrating the Bay Area’s longstanding enthusiasm for Henri Matisse, Matisse from SFMOMA traces four decades of the artist’s career—from his early, Cézanne-inspired still lifes to his richly patterned and brightly colored figural paintings made in the 1920s and 1930s.

This intimate exhibition features 23 paintings, drawings, and bronzes from the internationally acclaimed collection of works by Matisse at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, joined by two paintings and two drawings from the Fine Arts Museums' own important Matisse holdings.

Intimate Impressionism includes nearly 70 treasured 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.
