Meeting Description: I am still working on the details for a group tour of the temporary exhibit "Inspiring Impressionism" at the Denver Art Museum. I will give more details later once they have been determined.
Inspiring Impressionism explores how impressionist artists were inspired by their artistic predecessors?a theme rarely examined in previous exhibitions.
Through side-by-side comparisons, this show demonstrates that impressionists, who are popularly seen as artistic revolutionaries, drew inspiration from earlier artists, including Raphael, El Greco, Rubens, van Rysdael, Velazquez, and Watteau. The exhibition features about 100 works of art, including 65 artworks by impressionist painters like Monet, Degas, and Renoir. Inspiring Impressionism will be on view through May 25, 2008.
