DENVER (CBS4) – Three-hundred years of fine art takes center stage in Denver with “Passport to Paris” — a three-part exhibit that opens Sunday at the Denver Art Museum.
The three parts to the exhibit are drawing, changing styles over three centuries, and an exploration of French impressionism.
“It’s beautiful, it’s very interesting and I had a blast at this,” CBS4 Critic at Large Greg Moody said.
Moody got sneak peak of the exploration of French impressionism Nature as Muse exhibit that includes a lot impressionistic landscape with some pieces from Cezanne.
There’s also a wonderful piece by Renoir called “Banks of the Seine.”
“You get up close to it and all you see is flecks of paint. Step back and the peice comes alive,” Moody said.
Other pieces featured are “Greenwich Hills” by John Henry Twachtman and “A Walk in the Park” by Childe Hassam.
“It seems to light up from the inside,” Moody said about “A Walk in the Park.”
There are also six Monets – many from the Frederick Hamilton collection.
“Passport to Paris” opens Sunday, Oct. 27, and runs until Feb. 9. There are three exhibits – “Court to Café,” “Nature as Muse,” and “The Drawing Room.” All are available on one ticket. Visit DenverArtMuseum.org for more information.
