An Impressionist Autumn October 20, 2019–January 12, 2020

“Radically Beautiful” —Houston Chronicle 

An Impressionist Autumn celebrates French avant-garde painting with two exhibitions that capture a “Who’s Who” of the Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, and Early Modern movements. The MFAH is the only venue for Monet to Picasso: A Very Private Collection and Berthe Morisot: Impressionist Original.

Monet to Picasso: A Very Private Collection features paintings by the pivotal artists who sparked the major art movements of the late-19th through mid-20th century, including Mary Cassatt, Paul Cézanne, Vincent van Gogh, Henri Matisse, Claude Monet, and Pablo Picasso.

Berthe Morisot: Impressionist Original highlights Berthe Morisot’s approach to portraiture, her focus on the life of women in 19th-century Paris, and her role as one of the founding members of the Impressionist group.
