Join us as Angelica Daneo
, Associate Curator of Painting and Sculpture and Curator of Passport to Paris: Court to Cafe - Three Centuries of French Masterworks from the Wadsworth Atheneum
at the Denver Art Museum takes us on our own private visual tour through the Exhibit.
The Wadsworth Atheneum, located in Harford, Connecticut is one of the country's oldest art institutions. This is the first time the 50 masterworks in this exhibition have been shown together. Some pieces from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art are also included. Denver Art Museum Director Christoph Heinrich describes this exhibit as"...the richness of French art, from the grand and monumental art of the time of Louis XIV to the lively depictions of contemporary life as captured by the impressionists."
This is Angelica's second opportunity to meet with the City Club of Denver and those who heard her two years ago know this will be a historically accurate and intriguing presentation.
