Bringing together some 60 examples drawn from collections around the world, Cézanne Portraits is the first exhibition devoted to the famed post-impressionist’s portraits. The revelatory exhibition provides the first full visual account of Paul Cézanne’s portrait practice, exploring the pictorial and thematic characteristics of his works in the genre, the chronological development of his style and method, and the range and influence of his sitters. Several paintings are exclusive to the National Gallery of Art’s presentation, while some works have never before been exhibited in the United States.
Let's go check out this great exhibit - right when it opens at 11:00 am on the first day.
Some additional events for you to join us at:
10:00 - 10:15: Michele and Robert will have breakfast at Starbucks (325 7th St NW #100) next to the Archives-Navy Memorial-Penn Quarter Metro before making the short 4-block walk to the National Gallery of Art.
12:00 - 1:45: “Women, Fashion & Art” Guided Tour. Rebecca Durgin provides an overview of the changing representation of women from the 15th century to the 19th century in art through the fashions they wear. Meet in the Rotunda – limited space event and thus advanced registration required.

4:30: Cézanne—Portraits of a Life Film (East Building Auditorium)
Registration: FREE - This event is open to the public and all are welcome.
Weather: This event is indoors and will take place rain or shine.
Meeting Point: Meet outside the National Gallery of Art’s Madison Drive entrance. The museum doesn’t open until 11:00. However, since this will be an extremely popular exhibit let’s arrive at 10:30 to get in line and socialize beforehand in order to avoid the big crowds that are certain to show up later in the day.
Additional Questions: Anything that can’t be answered by the above event description, Google, or common sense please let us know.
