The Alameda Main Library present a talk on the show “Impressionists on the Water” from 6:30 to 8 p.m. this Wednesday May 29. The speaker is Marsha Holm, a docent from the de Young Museum in San Francisco.
The presentation of the talk comes right before the start of an exhibition at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco, which runs through October 13. The art show is meant to coincide with the America’s Cup races and will include boat models.
“Impressionists on the Water” focuses on the nautical life as revealed in more than 80 paintings and works on paper by the Impressionists, such as Claude Monet, Gustave Caillebotte, Pierre-August Renoir, and Camille Pissarro and Post-Impressionists such as Maurice Denis and Paul Signac.
Paintings included in the Bay Area show came from the Musée d’Orsay, Paris; the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam; the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles; and private collections, as well as from the Fine Arts Museums’ own holdings.
