Lecture on the Norton Simon Museum's 19th-Century Art Wing.
This season, the Museum moved its collection of 19th century pastels to a new gallery. As a result, we made some small but significant changes to our 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.
