Innovative Impressions

Jun 10, 2018 - Sep 09, 2018

Innovative Impressions explore the groundbreaking prints and techniques developed by Impressionist masters Mary Cassatt, Edgar Degas, and Camille Pissaro. While many Impressionist painters are known for their innovative methods, these three used their collaboration and experimentation to expand the boundaries of the print medium.

Innovative Impressions highlights the printmaking techniques practiced by Pissarro, Cassatt, and Degas, who learned from each other while developing very different bodies of work. Thanks to such artistic exchanges, the three produced prints that were among the most daringly creative works of their careers. Philbrook is the exclusive venue for the exhibition, which is curated by Sarah Lees, Hardman Curator of European Art, and features a wide range of prints along with key paintings by each artist, lent from collections across the US.

The show coincides with Philbrook’s Summer in France. In partnership with Tulsa Global Alliance, Philbrook Members can win a trip Tulsa’s sister city, Amiens, France, by registering during any museum visit. All summer long, we’ll be showing movies on our Film Lawn: The Goonies, Moulin Rouge!, Ratatouille, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Labyrinth, The Shining, and a “people’s-choice” double-feature.

We’ll also have our new Friday night routine, Burger Night, going every week, with burgers, beer, activities, and live music.  Check out our Calendar for upcoming events.
