Impressionism in a New Light: From Monet to Stieglitz
Impressionism in a New Light: From Monet to Stieglitz features more than 150 works by many of the most important artists of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Drawn primarily from Carnegie Museum of Art’s significant collection, the exhibition recaptures the radical nature of the Impressionist movement and explores its influences in many forms. Including beloved works by artists such as Cassatt, Cézanne, Degas, Gauguin, Van Gogh, Monet, Pissarro, Renoir, and Seurat, Impressionism in a New Light also examines the visual dialogue between Impressionism and the Pictorialist movement in photography, intermixing photographs by Demachy, Käsebier, Stieglitz, Steichen, White, and others. Overall, the exhibition investigates the complicated nature of Impressionist art, transforming our understanding of these enduringly popular works.
This exhibition is organized by Amanda Zehnder, associate curator of fine arts, and Linda Benedict-Jones, curator of photography.
