See the masters, and others, in Impressionist Joslyn exhibit
By Carol Bicak / World-Herald staff writer


Impressionism is probably the most widely known art movement. Even people who have never taken an art class are familiar with Monet and Renoir.

Starting Saturday, visitors to Joslyn Art Museum will be able to take in Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings by many of the most popular names in the art world. The exhibition, “From Renoir to Chagall: Paris and the Allure of Color,” 49 paintings from the Dixon Gallery and Gardens in Memphis, Tenn., will spend the summer at the Joslyn before heading home.

IF YOU GO

What: “From Renoir to Chagall: Paris and the Allure of Color,” exhibition of 49 Impressionist and Post-Impressionist artworks from the Dixon Gallery and Gardens

When: Saturday through Sept. 1

Hours: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays; 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursdays; noon to 4 p.m. Sundays. Closed Mondays.

Where: Joslyn Art Museum, 2200 Dodge St.

Admission: Free

In addition to paintings by Claude Monet and Pierre-Auguste Renoir, there are works by Paul Cťzanne, Edgar Degas, Henri Matisse, Paul Gauguin, Mary Cassatt, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Georges Seurat, John Singer Sargent and Marc Chagall.

Perhaps even more exciting are works by artists that are every bit as great as those by the famous painters, but whose names never became as popular or well-known except to serious art students. It's fun to discover artists Stanislas-Victor-…douard Lťpine, Henri Fantin-Latour, Jean-FranÁois RaffaŽlli or Jean-Louis Forain and their work.

The Dixon Gallery and Gardens was founded nearly 40 years ago by the late Hugo and Margaret Dixon, who started collecting art under the direction of the late John Rewald, a leading art scholar and author. The collection has grown in scope and number of artworks, from 26 to more than 2,000.

Joslyn Art Museum now has free wi-fi in all its galleries. Guests can bring their own mobile devices or borrow one from the Joslyn to access a mobile tour of the exhibition at www.joslyn.org/mobiletour or the “Renoir to Chagall” interactive scavenger hunt at www.edventurebuilder.com/joslyn. (Those features won't be available until Saturday.)

Joslyn also will present various events centered on the exhibit throughout the summer, including a family fun day on June 23 and a Bastille Day celebration on July 14.

Don't forget: Admission to Joslyn and to “Renoir to Chagall” is free.
