Now, after logging thousands of miles, Impressionist and Modern Masters from The Cleveland Museum of Art is returning home so Clevelanders can reconnect with the museum. “It’s a chance for people in the city to become reacquainted with their favorite pieces and also see pieces being shown in a new way,” says William Robinson, the museum’s curator of modern European art.
Works by Claude Monet, Vincent Van Gogh, Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso will be included in the 140-piece exhibition, as well as others that were kept safely stored rather than sent on tour. “We are showing, in Cleveland, [works] too fragile and light-sensitive to take on the road,” Robinson says, including pastels by Edgar Degas, Odilon Redon and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, as well as graphic works by Picasso not usually seen by the public.
