Picasso and Master Impressionists

One of the delights of living in Palm Springs is that we enjoy a world-class art museum right downtown, and every Thursday evening it is open to the public for free. My husband and I visit at least once a month because there are always new exhibits to enjoy.

This summer, the museum is presenting a selection of outstanding Impressionist paintings and sketches that showcase the artistic experimentation that roiled the established art world from the late 1880’s through the 20th century.  Works by Edouard Manet, Vincent Van Gogh, Edgar Degas, Roger De la Fresnay, Raoul Dufy, and a dozen works (mostly sketches) by Pablo Picasso. Picasso’s works on view date from 1905, during his earliest years in Paris, through his mature work of the 1960’s.

I attended last Thursday, and wanted to try out the camera on my new phone, but the museum did not allow picture taking of this particular exhibit, so you’ll have to come see it for yourself. I did take a few snapshots of other modern, hopefully interesting, works of the other exhibits. Enjoy….
