Between Past and Future: Monet’s Bridges

As part of the exhibition Monet: The Early Years at the Kimbell Museum of Art, Richard R. Brettell, founding director, The Edith O’Donnell Institute of Art History; Margaret McDermott Distinguished Chair, The University of Texas at Dallas, gives a lecture reconstructing Claude Monet’s submissions to the 1872 Exhibition of Independent Artists in the context of his fellow exhibitors, including Boudin, Renoir, Pissarro, Degas, Sisley, and artists long forgotten.

The lecture examines the extensive criticism of the Independents as well as Édouard Manet’s decision not to join his friends and to show instead at the Salon of 1874.

No registration required but seating is limited.
