Familiar Faces in New Places: Changes in Norton Simon's 19th-Century Art Wing
The Norton Simon Museum recently moved its collection of 19th century pastels to a new gallery. As a result, the Museum’s made some small but significant changes to the 19th-century wing—a particular strength of the Simon collection. To mark the reinstallation, Curator Leah Lehmbeck addresses some of the fundamental narratives that run throughout these remarkable galleries.
In highlighting paintings by Manet, Renoir, Degas, Monet, Van Gogh and Vuillard, she traces the early artistic developments that led to Impressionism as well as discussing the various artistic experiments that followed.
