Impressionism and Post-Impressionism Painting
Reflect on color, light, and brushstrokes as you examine landscapes, portraits, and still lifes in late nineteenth-century France. The survey of French painting between Neoclassicism and Post-Impressionism offered by the museum’s collection is second only to collections in Paris. Guests receive a guided tour on this topic. 

In the afternoon, guests explore the museum on their own and have the opportunity to view works from the Zimmerli collection on loan for the exhibition Seurat’s Circus SideshowTaking as its focus one of The Met's most captivating masterpieces, this thematic exhibition affords a unique context for appreciating the heritage and allure of Circus Sideshow (Parade de cirque), painted in 1887–88 by Georges Seurat (1859–91). Anchored by a remarkable group of related works by Seurat that fully illuminate the lineage of the motif in his inimitable conté crayon drawings, the presentation explores the fascination the sideshow subject held for other artists in the nineteenth century, ranging from the great caricaturist Honoré Daumier at mid-century to the young Pablo Picasso at the fin de siècle.

Christine Giviskos, Curator of Prints, Drawings, and European Art provides additional insight on the trip 

The cost includes transportation, admission, tours, and lunch in the museum's public cafeteria. For registration and details, download the flyer.
