About the Event

This is a two-part event. Please see full description below for details. 

Over nine intense weeks in the summer of 1905, Henri Matisse (1869–1954) and André Derain (1880–1954) embarked on a creative partnership that would change the course of French painting. Vertigo of Color: Matisse, Derain, and the Origins of Fauvism will present, for the first time in the United States, the legacy of that legendary summer through 65 of Matisse’s and Derain’s paintings, drawings, and watercolors on loan from national and international museums and private collections. Through an audacious exploration of new aesthetic territory, the two painters experimented with daring directions in paint and energetic bursts of color, form, and structure that eventually led to a boldly inventive artistic language known as Fauvism. 

Following the tour will be a self-guided entry to the Manet/Degas exhibition. This exhibition examines one of the most significant artistic dialogues in modern art history: the close and sometimes tumultuous relationship between Édouard Manet and Edgar Degas. Through more than 150 paintings and works on paper, Manet/Degas takes a fresh look at the interactions of these two artists in the context of the family relationships, friendships, and intellectual circles that influenced their artistic and professional choices, deepening our understanding of a key moment in nineteenth-century French painting.
