|Pizzagalli Center, Shelburne Museum,|
with natural wood and stone throughout
|Le Pont - Amsterdam, Claude Monet, 1874|
The title of the show, "In a New Light", refers to the fact that until the recent opening of the Pizzagalli Center, the fine paintings in the Shelburne collection were shown in historic homes, without gallery lighting.
With about two dozen paintings by Gustave Courbet, Edouard Manet, Claude Monet, Edgar Degas and Mary Cassatt, the show is certainly worth a visit if you are in the area. Informative notes in English and French are posted beside each work.
Guided tours are available daily at 11:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.
