French Moderns: Monet to Matisse, 1850–1950, at the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens is on exhibit through Sept. 8. The exhibition features more than 60 works of art from the Brooklyn Museum’s renowned European collection and positions France as the artistic center of international modernism from the mid-19th to mid-20th centuries.
Ranging widely in scale, subject matter and style, these paintings, drawings and sculptures were intended for public display and private collections, and were produced by the era’s leading artists, those born in France as well as those who studied and exhibited there, such as Paul Cézanne, Edgar Degas, Henri Matisse, Claude Monet and Pierre-Auguste Renoir.
The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens is located at 829 Riverside Ave, in Jacksonville. For more information, visit cummermuseum.org.
