"Nineteenth Century French Master Drawings and Sculpture from the Schlossberg Collection"
The Oglethorpe University Museum of Art’s current exhibition “Nineteenth Century French Master Drawings and Sculpture from the Schlossberg Collection,” on view through December 12, includes works by Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, Paul Gauguin, Edgar Degas, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Georges Seurat, Antoine Bourdelle, Camille Pissarro and Auguste Rodin, among others.
A review by Jerry Cullum on ArtsCriticATL.com describes the exhibition as using “museum-quality works…to illustrate the range of mark-making that was possible within the aesthetic limits of a single European realist tradition.”
