Discovering the Impressions
Monday April 20, 2015 - Bus Departs RPM lot at 7:00 a.m.
Join the Reading Public Museum for a special tour of Discovering the Impressionists: Paul Durand-Ruel and the New Painting at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
Uncover how art dealer Paul Durand-Ruel played a pivotal role in the rise of Impressionism, inspiring and sustaining artists like Monet, Renoir, Manet, Pissarro, and Degas. This exhibition traces the development of Impressionism — its struggles, successes, and eventual recognition — and reveals Durand-Ruel’s role in the movement. The extraordinary quality of the Impressionist paintings that were once part of his gallery’s stock is a testament to the dealer’s deep personal relationships with the now-celebrated artists, his unwavering belief in contemporary painting, and his substantial business acumen.
Following the tour of the exhibition, you will be treated to lunch at the famed Waterworks Restaurant located along Boat House Row in Philadelphia. After lunch, guests are invited back inside the Philadelphia Museum of Art to view the permanent collections at your leisure.
