Yesterday morning we had a wonderful opportunity to go behind the scenes at the  National Gallery of Art and visit with Gregory Jecman, Associate Curator of Old Master Prints and Drawings.  He pulled some drawings and pastels by Degas, Monet, Renoir, Cezanne, and Morrisot that we were allowed to examine up close.  It was a rare experience.

We were amazed to see the detail of the work so close up.  The National Gallery offers many programs like this that a free for the asking as long as you make an appointment in advance.  For art lovers it is a must!  Here are the wonderful Degas’ and a Renoir that we saw yesterday.  There was so much to see that I will share the other things we saw in the next few days.

Self Portrait

Paul Cezanne (1839-1906), a French Post-impressionist, whose work is said to have laid the foundation between 19th Century impressionism and 20th century Cubism.  His small brushstrokes and use of color showed his concentrated study of subject matter.  The Phillips has many examples of Cezanne’s work and you can see his progression of his style over the years.

I’ve enjoyed seeing Cezanne’s work several other museums including The Philadelphia Museum of Art (read about it here)  and the National Gallery of Art in DC where they have one of my favorite Cezanne’s, The Artist’s Father.  (Check it out here.)
