Highlight: "Impressionist and Post Impressionist Masterpieces from the Pearlman Collection." This exhibition explores friendships among key artists of this period, working in Paris and environs, presented to visualize the many locations and sites—regional, national, and international—that shaped their work individually:
Van Gogh and Gauguin
Soutine, Modigliani and Lipchitz
Cézanne and the Avant-Garde
Artists and Collectors
The MFAH will juxtapose works from its Beck Collection, assembled during the same period as the Pearlman's acquisitions, to enrich the experience of both collections.
