"Monet and the Seine: Impressions of a River" Opens at Philbrook on Sunday
On this edition of ST, we're discussing a special exhibit that's set to open at the Philbrook Museum of Art here in Tulsa over the weekend. Indeed, it's Philbrook's first-ever exhibition of works by Claude Monet (1840-1926), the widely admired and highly influential Fresh Impressionist. "Monet and the Seine: Impressions of a River" opens on Sunday the 29th and runs through September 21, 2014. This show brings together works from throughout Monet's career, masterful paintings on loan from the National Gallery of Art (Washington, DC), the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York), the Musée d’Orsay (Paris), and other such leading institutions. Our guest is Sarah Lees, who began her tenure at Philbrook as the Ruth G. Hardman Curator of European Art about four months ago.
