Side by Side,
But Miles Apart
Presentation by Elizabeth Anderson
Sunday, April 21 at 2 p.m.
2nd Floor Community Room
In the 1860’s, at the beginning of their careers, Claude Monet and Pierre-Auguste Renoir often set up their easels, side-by-side, along the banks of the Seine where they depicted Parisians at leisure – swimming, boating, picnicking. As they developed, their art moved along divergent courses.
This lecture will explore their artistic production into the first decades of the 20th century. The lecture’s illustrations will include some works from Philadelphia’s two great holdings of Impressionist art: The Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Barnes Foundation.
