Toulouse-Lautrec and the Impressionism at the Coral Springs Museum of Art
Coral Springs Museum of Art presents Toulouse-Lautrec and His 19th Century Mentors, a unique, one of a kind exhibition of 19th Century Impressionist art.
This exhibition in the Main Gallery of the Museum is from a private collection of original lithographs, etchings, dry point, pen & ink and pencil drawings created by internationally known artists Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Mary Cassatt, Alphonse Mucha, Edgar Degas, Edouard Manet, James Whistler, Pierre-Auguste Renoir and other notable Impressionists.
Impressionism is an Art movement born of the French association of several artists of the mid-nineteenth century.
The Origin of the name"impressionit" comes from the negative reviews of newspapers tagging their paintings as sketches or impressions.
The Impressionists, however, viewed their own work as a finished piece.
Impressionism is characterized by atendency to record the fleeting impressions, the mobility of phenomena, rather than stable and conceptual aspect of things. Impressionism was a major influence on the art of this period, of the painting but also literature and music.
Belonging to the same artistic movement, their favorite subjects were, however, varied: life bohemian Paris of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Manet portraits, nudes by Pierre-Auguste Renoir, or the fascination of the movement of dancers by Degas.
Although essentially Impressionism is French, many American painters like Mary Cassatt and James Whistler lived in France and linked their work to the movement.
This exhibition is a must see – only showing at the Coral Springs Museum of Art – for a limited time through February 11, 2012.
