See Great French Art For The First Time In Florida

If you are looking for some culture you can't go far wrong by visiting the Museum Of Fine Arts at any point - you are always going to find something of interest there; well, if you like art you are. At the moment though they have a real draw with the exhibition Monet to Matisse - On The French Coast. This is the first time that a lot of this art has actually been in Florida or the Southeastern United States, so if you combine this fact with the great location and the unique chance to view these works arranged in this way, as an art lover, why would you not want to take advantage?

To celebrate the museum's 50th Anniversary they have put together this comparative collection that holds up the Impressionist and Modernist visions of the Atlantic and Mediterranean coasts of France. the museum already has an impressive collection of French art regularly on display and this just adds to and enriches that.

One Of Many Great Exhibitions At The Museum Of Fine Arts

The show runs from February 7th until May 31st, 2015, so there is plenty of time to catch these two masters, and some other great European painters. It was put together by Dr Kenneth Wayne, formerly of the Portland Museum Of Art and the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, working with Jennifer Hardin, the hazel and William Hough Chief Curator of the MFA.
