Having recently posted a blog on The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris by David McCullough, it seems appropriate to highlight the Seattle Art Museum’s Intimate Impressionism, a stunning exhibition of French Impressionist art. On display are masterpieces by Renoir, Monet, Manet, Morisot, Degas and others.
Many of these artists were featured in McCullough’s book as core to the Impressionist movement in the mid to late 19th century. I saw the exhibition yesterday and will likely revisit. If you’re in Seattle between Oct-Jan, this exhibition is a must see. You’ll also want to see Samuel Morse’s Gallery of the Louvre which is separate and on a different floor, but don’t miss it!
