This exhibit, which closed back in July, was part of the celebration of the Dixon Gallery's 40th year. Their website says,
The incredible examples of painting and sculpture on view in The Impressionist Revolution illustrate how Dixon’s permanent collection is perfectly poised to tell the story of Impressionism, from its roots to its lasting influence.I loved seeing all these works on display. I do have my favorites, of course, but decided to highlight 3 of the works that included drink-related elements so I could share it for T Tuesday (see link at the bottom of this post).
Cafe Interior by Jean-Louis Forain (1852-1931), exhibited in the 4th Impressionist exhibition in 1879:
The Picnic by Georges Seurat (1859-1891):
Le Dejeuner sur l'herbe by Auguste Clot:
While I was there I walked through the gardens. The cutting garden:
The back lawn:
Near the entrance there's a Little Free Library:
I have a membership to this place and go often. It's just delightful!
