Art lovers, join us for our third art talk with art historian Marie-Pierre Rondeau! This summer, the Art Institute of Chicago and the TATE MODERN in London are organizing a major retrospective on the Impressionist painter Cézanne. This will be the opportunity for Marie-Pierre Rondeau to take you virtually to the exhibition while explaining the life of the artist. You will learn why he is considered the father of modern and contemporary art and what makes his work remain so important today.
This presentation will be followed by a live Q&A, so come ready with your questions!
