Modern Painters and Their Critics

Modern Painters and Their Critics

Wednesday, January 28, 2015, 1:30 p.m.

The Mercedes T. and Sid R. Bass Painting and Sculpture Gallery, Gallery 1, fifth floor

Impressionism, Cubism, and Fauvism are some of the major art terms that were originally coined in negative critiques. Join a conversation about how icons of modern painting, including Monet, Picasso, and Van Gogh, paid their dues through initial critical reception.

Gallery Sessions, impromptu interactions facilitated by Museum educators that explore the creative process, art history, and the experience of art, take place daily in select galleries. Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free with Museum admission. No registration is required.

FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
