Cezanne Portraits

Evening Program

Tuesday, April 17, 2018 - 6:45 p.m.
Code: 1L0192
"Boy in a Red Waistcoat", 1888–1890, by Paul Cézanne (National Gallery Of Art)

A new exhibition opening in March at the National Gallery of Art, Cezanne Portraits, brings together some 60 examples drawn from collections around the world. The first devoted to the famed post-impressionist’s portraits, the exhibition provides a visual account of Paul Cezanne’s portrait practice, exploring the pictorial and thematic characteristics of his works in the genre, the chronological development of his style and method, and the range and influence of his sitters. Several paintings are exclusive to the National Gallery’s presentation, and some works have never been exhibited in the United States.

Join one of the curators of Cézanne Portraits, Mary Morton, head of the department of French paintings at the gallery, as she discusses the exhibition, its creation, and the new perspectives it offers on the artist.
