Inspiring Impressionism in Colorado

Through May 25, the Denver Museum of Art features Inspiring Impressionism, an exhibition of 100 works by Impressionist painters that examines the ways they were inspired by their Old Master predecessors—for example, looking at Putto next to Paul Cézanne’s Still Life with Stauette.

Other artists and their influences include: Claude Monet and Meindert Hobbema; Camille Pissarro and Jean-Siméon Chardin; Mary Cassatt and Jean-Honoré Fragonard, and more. Check the museum’s website for details about the show, and a cool timeline that connects the Impressionists to the Old Masters.
