The Welcoming Party: A Van Gogh Returns

Today we at the DMA are excited to welcome home after a “sabbatical” in Paris one of our masterpieces, van Gogh’s work on paper Café Terrace on the Place du Forum. On tour at the Musée d’Orsay, this magnificent work of art was one of only seven drawings featured in Van Gogh/Artaud: The Man Suicided by Society. This exhibition was seen by nearly 655,000 visitors over the course of four months, making it the highest-attended exhibition in Musée d’Orsay history. Now prominently and proudly on view in our special exhibition Mind’s Eye: Masterworks on Paper from David to Cézanne, Café Terrace on the Place du Forum joins other masterworks by van Gogh’s peer artists including Manet, Degas, Cézanne, and Renoir. Say “bonjour” and see it now through October 26 on a visit to Mind’s Eye.

What Our Staff Is Viewing

Last week, DMA staff got a chance to preview our newest special exhibition, Mind’s Eye: Masterworks on Paper from David to Cézanne, with co-curators Olivier Meslay and Bill Jordan. Because of their delicate nature, many of these works on paper by Delacroix, Degas, Cézanne, van Gogh, Manet, Schiele, Mondrian, Picasso, and more than sixty others are rarely on view. We’re open all week—including July 4—so stop by for what may be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see them.

November Programs for Teachers

We are gearing up for two exciting programs for teachers this month:

Our first program will be on Saturday, November 7 at 9:00 a.m.  My colleague Logan Acton and I will be leading a teacher workshop on our special exhibitions that take a fresh look at the Museum’s collections through the theme of performance: All the World’s a Stage and Performance/Art.  This workshop starts before the Museum opens to the public, giving teachers the opportunity to explore these exhibitions before other visitors arrive.  Complete details, including registration, can be found on the Web site.

For our Thursday Evening Program for Teachers this month, we will be joining the public lecture Manet, Models, Portraits, and “La Vie Moderne,” given by Dr. Nancy Locke, Associate Professor of Art History, Penn State University, on November 12 at 7:00 p.m.  Admission to this lecture is free for teachers, upon presentation of faculty ID.  Advance registration is not required and seating is limited.  Teachers are welcome to arrive early and join education staff in the “Teachers Lounge” in the Atrium Café.
