Pick: Landscapes from the Age of Impressionism and Renoir to Chagall: Paris and the Allure of Color

Until September 1 Joslyn will display 38 impressionistic paintings to the public. The paintings range in dates from the 1850’s to the 1920’s, highlighting classic talents like Claude Monet and Gustave Courbet.  See how Monet’s work is so meticulous.
