First Wednesday Art Talk
Color into Line: Pastels from the Renaissance to the Present
With the appearance of painting, the immediacy of drawing, and the matte finish of a fresco, pastel is one of the most versatile mediums used throughout art history. This exhibition spans five centuries of art, from the early Renaissance to present day. Drawing heavily on treasures from the Legion’s Achenbach Collection for Graphic Arts, the exhibition features masterpieces by artists including Mary Cassatt, Edgar Degas, and Wayne Thiebaud. This talk will trace the history of pastels while also providing audiences a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to appreciate rare works not usually on public view.
At the Legion of Honor October 9, 2021 – February 13, 2022
