About The Exhibition
Organized by the National Gallery of Art from the personal collections formed by Ailsa Mellon Bruce and her brother, Paul Mellon, and other donors to the National Gallery, Intimate Impressionism is the most extensive exhibition of French Impressionist and post- Impressionist paintings to come to San Antonio. In nearly 70 landscapes, portraits, interiors and still lifes, the exhibition demonstrates the similar aesthetic goals shared by the avant- garde painters of the era. The plein-air practices of Impressionist precursors Eugene Boudin and Johan Barthold Jongkind, inspired brightly colored, luminous works by featured artists Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Camille Pissarro, and Alfred Sisley. Intimate Impressions also features paintings that are personal in subject matter, including fascinating self-portraits by Edgar Degas, Henri Fantin-Latour, Paul Gauguin, and Edouard Vuillard, as well as works depicting family members or friends and views of the artist's favorite spaces. A fully-illustrated catalogue accompanies the exhibition. San Antonio, San Francisco and Seattle, and in Rome and Tokyo abroad, are the only exhibition venues.
