With Artists Like Van Gogh, Monet, and Degas, You Are Sure to Love This French Art Exhibit

Have you had a curious mind for artwork? Featuring more than 70 works by French and European masters, “Van Gogh, Monet, Degas: The Mellon Collection of French Art” celebrates Mr. and Mrs. Paul Mellon’s extraordinary gift of the nineteenth and early twentieth-century French art to the VMFA.

The exhibition reproduces the invigorating experience of the Mellons’ collection, in which each work resonates with and gains greater strength from its lovingly created context. Van Gogh, Monet, Degas is presented in a series of sections including Cyphers of Modernity, Horses, Flowers, Views of Paris, People, Water, Interiors and Tables, The French Countryside, The Transformation of the Ordinary, and VMFA: Toward Impressionism.

Opening with Cyphers of Modernity, visitors will be introduced to two of the collection’s most characteristic paintings: Berthe Morisot’s Young Woman Watering a Shrub and Théodore Géricault’s Mounted Jockey. These paintings are emblematic of the collection in their commitment to modernism, as well as their subject matter, which appealed to Mrs. Mellon’s love of gardening and Mr. Mellon’s passion for horses and horseracing.

“Van Gogh, Monet, Degas: The Mellon Collection of French Art” will be on display until September 22nd. Admission prices will vary. For more information, visit www.okcmoa.com.
