Artful Weekend: The Kimbell’s Visual Banquet
Vincent van Gogh's "Self-Portrait," 1887.
Édouard Manet's "The Balcony," 1868–69
Paul Cézanne's "Woman with a Coffeepot," 1890–95
Henri de Toulouse‐Lautrec's "Portrait of Justine Dieulh," 1891.
The fabled Musée d’Orsay, Paris, sends its renowned Impressionist treasures packing to Fort Worth, where the Kimbell Art Museum’s Renzo Piano Pavilion becomes the staging area for a sumptuous feast, which moves beyond the landscapes of Monet and crew, to deliver instead a show of the unforgettable “Faces of Impressionism” — including portraits worthy of Bacon, Freud of Neel. Monet and Renoir are here, but so are Manet, Cézanne, Degas, Van Gogh, Lautrec, Caillebotte and Gauguin, as well as underknown women painters of the era, Berthe Morisot and Eva Gonzalès. This blockbuster literally puts a new face on the movement that anticipated modernism (through January 25).
