The Impressionist Revolution:
Forty Years of French Art at the Dixon

Wednesday, January 29, 2020, 10am
Daniels Pavilion
Julie Pierotti, Martha R. Robinson Curator at Dixon Gallery and Gardens

The first Impressionist exhibition of 1874 brought to light the innovations of a rebellious group of artists later known as Impressionists, but such radical change did not occur overnight. This lecture discusses the impact of techniques employed by artists working a generation before the Impressionists, and it reveals how the Impressionists created a new visual language that has influenced the art world ever since.

Reflections of Another World

Thursday, February 27, 2020, 10am
Daniels Pavilion
Elliott King, Associate Professor of Art History, Washington and Lee University

René Magritte admitted that it was not his intention “to make anything comprehensible.” Duly, he shrouded his art in mysteries that continue to fascinate — and even frustrate — audiences the world over. In this lecture, guest curator Dr. Elliott King aims to shed light onto the enduring enigma of Magritte, from Surrealism to wartime Impressionism and his relevance to later artists.
