ONE EACH: Still Lifes by Pissarro, Cézanne, Manet & Friends
With its solemnity and spontaneity, Camille Pissarro’s Still Life of 1867 is one of the most rewarding and mesmerizing compositions in the collection of the Toledo Museum of Art. ONE EACH: Still Lifes by Pissarro, Cézanne, Manet & Friends is a one-gallery focus exhibition that places this masterpiece in context. The exhibition will feature still lifes by seven French painters, all created in a single decade—the 1860s. Included are sterling examples from the hand of Édouard Manet, regarded as the ‘father of modern painting’, and Paul Cézanne, considered to have been the driving precursor of Cubism, the early 20th-century’s major art movement. Rounding out the group are superb paintings by Frédéric Bazille, Claude Monet, Henri Fantin-Latour, and Gustave Courbet.
