In celebration of our 75th anniversary year, Tacoma Art Museum has organized a series of exhibitions featuring many of the gems of the permanent collection supplemented with key loans. Leading off the series is an exhibition of paintings, prints, and sculpture that explores the impressionist movement and its international influence. Included are works by many well-known French impressionists including Degas, Renoir, and Pissarro, as well as impressionists from other countries, such as Whistler, Cassatt, Sorolla, and Pokitonov. By comparing and contrasting images from different artists and regions, the exhibition explores how the impressionist stlye was adopted and reshaped as it moved across continets and from artist to artist.
