"The Triumph of French Painting"
2000-03-12 until 2000-07-16
Baltimore Museum of Art
Baltimore, MD, USA United States of America

Illustrating the rare genius of some of the most distinguished artists of all time—from Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres to Henri Matisse—this magnificent exhibition surveys a triumphant age in art history with more than sixty paintings drawn from the world-renowned collections of The Baltimore Museum of Art and the Walters Art Gallery.

The Triumph of French Painting features more than thirty celebrated artists, including Ingres, Delacroix, Corot, Millet, Monet, Renoir, Cézanne, van Gogh, Picasso, and Matisse. A dramatic array of styles and genres—including landscapes, still lifes, portraits, and history paintings—are displayed in this epic story of 19th- and early 20th-century French painting. From Delacroix's inspiring biblical scenes to Millet's peasants working in the field at twilight to Monet's mist-shrouded impressionis of London, the works in the exhibition form a remarkably comprehensive overview of the period ranging from Neoclassicism through Post-Impressionism.

The Triumph of French Painting is organized and circulated by The Baltimore Museum of Art and the Walters Art Gallery. Following its Baltimore premiere, the exhibition travels to The Philbrook Museum of Art, Tulsa; The Norton Museum of Art, Palm Beach; the Royal Academy of Art, London; and the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, New York. The exhibition is jointly organized by Sona Johnston, BMA Senior Curator of Painting & Sculpture, and William R. Johnston, Associate Director and Curator of 18th- and 19th-Century Art, the Walters Art Gallery. The exhibition features an illustrated catalogue copublished by the BMA and The Walters. The Triumph of French Painting is sponsored by AEGON USA. Additional support provided by the BMA's Women's Committee.
