UNITED STATES
DENVER, COLORADO  •  Denver Art Museum  •  Ongoing
 

Nature as Muse: Impressionist Landscapes from the Frederic C. Hamilton Collection and the Denver Art Museum is part of the exhibition Passport to Paris.

The exhibition displays the work of nineteenth-century impressionist artists, including Claude Monet, Berthe Morisot, Camille Pissarro, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Alfred Sisley.

Focusing on landscape paintings, this exhibition will feature about 36 artworks from the private collection of Frederic C. Hamilton and the DAM’s own holdings. This is the first time that the masterworks from Hamilton’s private collection will be on view to the public.

In the beginning of the nineteenth century, artists took their easels and paints and worked outside, freed from the constraints of studio space and light. Utilizing loose brushstrokes and a soft color palette, the impressionists told the story of the French countryside through their canvases.
