Van Gogh Self Portrait

About the exhibition
A collection of true national treasures—50 of the finest Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings from the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC—travels to Houston while the galleries that house the NGA’s 19th-century French collection are closed for renovation.

The National Gallery´s Impressionist and Post-Impressionist collection ranks among the finest of any museum in the world and features some of the most famous artists active in France between the 1860s and the early 20th century. The MFAH presentation showcases masterpieces by Mary Cassatt, Paul Cézanne, Edgar Degas, Vincent van Gogh, Édouard Manet, Claude Monet, Auguste Renoir, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, and others. An unrivaled loan in the National Gallery’s history, this exhibition offers a splendid overview of one of the greatest periods in European art and a survey of movements that changed the course of art history. An illustrated catalogue, exploring these paintings in depth, is available at MFAH Shop (713.639.7360).
