Portraits and the Stories They Tell (50 min., for groups up to 60 people/three docents)
Since the Renaissance, portraitists have flaunted convention. In addition to representing people of different walks of life, artists have used this genre to explore new styles, symbolize social change, or evoke universal concepts. This tour features works by American and European masters such as van Dyck, Renoir, Picasso, and Matisse.
The Artists of Paris (50 min., groups up to 40/two docents)
Through the 19th and 20th centuries, artists flocked to Paris to study, launch careers, and perhaps, influence the art world. The transformation of this ancient city into a modern metropolis served as the backdrop for artistic innovations. This tour examines some of these ground-breaking artists through works in the Museum Collection. Painters and sculptors such as Americans Childe Hassam and Alexander Calder as well as Monet, Soutine, and others are included.
New York, New York (50 min., groups up to 40/two docents)
The Museum Collection holds great works by artists who depicted life in New York through the first half of the 20th century. More recent acquisitions to the Collection tell the story of New York’s role as capital of the art world in recent decades. Artworks examined on this tour may include realists George Bellows and Edward Hopper, as well as modernists such as Stuart Davis and Jackson Pollock, among others.
Women in the Arts (50 min., groups up to 60/three docents)
Women have played numerous roles in the arts over the centuries including muse, artist and patron. This tour examines diverse works, from Joshua Reynolds’ portrait of London’s daring aristocrat, Jane, Duchess of Gordon, and Georgia O’Keeffe’s modern visions of everyday life, to dramatic, innovative works by contemporary artists such as Beth Lipman.
Art and Nature (50 min., groups up to 60/three docents)
From the first clay form to today’s public sculptures, artists have interacted with their environment. This tour spans the Museum Collection, considering the ways artists have used remarkable materials such as jade, amber, and glass and also addresses the development of landscape painting from the Renaissance to the present. Visitors will learn about artists from China and Baroque Europe as well as Monet, O’Keeffe, and Chihuly.
