Fall Arts Preview 2021

Fall Arts Preview cover featuring various acts


Monet to Matisse

OCT. 7-JAN. 9 Depicting the duality of the French countryside and the urban sprawl of Paris, an exhibit featuring masterworks by French Impressionists will soon be on view at the Crocker. On loan from the Dixon Gallery & Gardens in Memphis, the presentation will feature 50 seemingly luminous canvases, including The Picture Book by Pierre-Auguste Renoir, a portrait of the painter’s rosy-cheeked son with his nose in an illustrated page-turner; Port of Dieppe, Evening, a shimmering harbor scene by Claude Monet; and Jean-Louis Forain’s Woman in a Café (pictured), which captures a slice of 19th-century Parisian life. While Monet to Matisse will span the pre- to post-Impressionist period (late 1860s to 1910s) in Europe, visitors can mosey down the hall to the museum’s California collection to see how Golden State Impressionists like Granville Redmond and Edgar Alwin Payne were inspired by their contemporaries from across the pond. Masks required; advance tickets recommended. $12. Thurs.-Sun. 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Crocker Art Museum. 216 O St. 916-808-7000. crockerart.org
