*** REPEAT EVENT ***
The acclaimed international tour of The Age of Impressionism: Great French Paintings from the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute concludes in Houston at the MFAH. Showcasing the Clark's renowned holdings of 19th-century French painting, this spectacular exhibition features more than 70 works of art by a stellar lineup that includes Edgar Degas, Édouard Manet, Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir. Also represented are Pierre Bonnard, William-Adolphe Bouguereau, Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, Jean-Léon Gérôme, Jean-François Millet, Berthe Morisot, Alfred Sisley, and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.
The Clark launched the collection tour in 2011 at the Palazzo Reale in Milan, coinciding with a three-year expansion of the Clark's Williamstown, Massachusetts, facility. The MFAH is only the second, and the final, U.S. museum to host the exhibition.
