In a New Light: French Impressionism Arrives in America
Place:Shelburne Museum
Time:10 am - 5 pm Daily
Contact Name:Jeff Bundy

Exquisite and powerful paintings by Monet, Manet, Degas and other French Impressionist masters will be on display this summer at Shelburne Museum in a new exhibition curated by Tom Denenberg, the Museum’s director and European paintings scholar, Margaret Burgess. This exhibition showcases Shelburne Museum’s renowned collection of French painting as well as significant loans from private collections and from the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. Masterpieces such as Edouard Manet’s striking Blue Venice; Gustave Courbet’s moody and mesmerizing Nature Morte: Still Life; and Claude Monet’s majestic Meules, Effet de Neige (Grainstacks, Snow Effect). The centerpiece of the exhibition, Monet’s Le Pont, Amsterdam (The Drawbridge, Amsterdam), is the very first painting by Monet to become part of an American collection and a tour de force of Monet’s Impressionist style. Acquired in Paris by Louisine Havemeyer, mother of Museum founder Electra Havemeyer Webb, the painting is a favorite at Shelburne Museum and a “Rosetta Stone” in the history of American collecting. Presented alongside five other examples of Monet’s work in the exhibition, The Drawbridge, Amsterdam is a critical visual document that demonstrates the ways in which Impressionism became an international grammar of seeing. Its enduring presence at Shelburne Museum exemplifies how crucial Louisine and H.O. Havemeyer were in “bridging the gap” between the American and French art worlds and in bringing Impressionism to America. Due to the new modern galleries in the Pizzagalli Center for Art and Education, audiences in Vermont will be able to see Electra Havemeyer Webb’s full collection of Impressionist paintings in a museum gallery setting for the first time, allowing each visitor to experience the revolutionary genius of these masterpieces. On display in the Pizzagalli Center for Art and Education’s Cynthia O. and Donald B. Murphy Gallery June 14 through September 1.
