Renoir to Chagall: Paris and the Allure of Color

 October 11, 2014 – January 11, 2015

Few places continue to enthrall us like Paris and the rich legacy of the artists who made the “City of Light” their home.
Together, these artists, including the well-known leaders of French impressionism—Claude Monet, Pierre Auguste Renoir, Camille Pissarro and Alfred Sisley—came to define 19th-century Parisian modernity, bringing to life the cafés, city streets, and brightly lit seaside resorts of the French capital and its environs.
Renoir to Chagall: Paris and the Allure of Color showcases 55 masterpieces from the renowned collection of the Dixon Gallery and Gardens.
Organized by the Dixon Gallery and Gardens, Memphis.

American Chronicles: The Art of Norman Rockwell

March 7–May 31, 2015

One of the most popular American artists of the past century, Norman Rockwell (1894–1978) was a keen observer of human nature and a gifted storyteller.
For nearly seven decades, while history was in the making all around him, Rockwell chronicled our changing society in the small details and nuanced scenes of ordinary people in everyday life, providing a personalized interpretation—albeit often an idealized one—of American identity. His depictions offered a reassuring visual haven during a time of momentous transformation as our country evolved into a complex, modern society.

Rockwell’s contributions to our visual legacy, many of them now icons of American culture, have found a permanent place in our national psyche.

Organized by the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts
