Current & Upcoming Exhibitions in the U.S.
Verrocchio: Sculptor and Painter of Renaissance Florence
National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C.
September 15, 2019–January 12, 2020
According to the NGA, “Verrocchio: Sculptor and Painter of Renaissance Florence is the first-ever monographic exhibition in the United States on Andrea del Verrocchio (c. 1435–1488), the innovative artist, painter, sculptor, and teacher whose pupils included Leonardo da Vinci, Pietro Perugino, and likely Sandro Botticelli as well. The exhibition examines the wealth and breadth of Verrocchio’s extraordinary artistry by bringing together some 50 of his masterpieces in painting, sculpture, and drawing that allow viewers to appreciate how his work in each art form stimulated creativity in the others.”
This exhibition is currently on view in Italy at the Palazzo Strozzi and includes over a dozen sculptures and artifacts on loan from the Louvre.
Renoir: The Body, The Senses
Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute
June 8–September 22, 2019
According to The Clark, “on the centenary of Renoir’s death, this exhibition provides new perspectives about the artist’s stylistic trajectory through the lens of a single subject. Renoir captured bustling scenes of the urban cityscape, members of fashionable society, and fleeting moments of atmospheric effects upon landscape, but his overarching preoccupation was the nude—an interest that was, at least in part, rooted in his desire to be considered alongside the great artists in history. ”
The Louvre has one painting by François Boucher on loan for this exhibition. The exhibition will continue on to the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth from October 27, 2019 to January 26, 2020.
