Nature as Muse: Impressionist Landscapes from the Frederic C. Hamilton Collection and the Denver Art Museum

Nature as Muse: Impressionist Landscapes from the Frederic C. Hamilton Collection and the Denver Art Museum was part of the exhibition Passport to Paris. It features the Impressionist masterworks that Denver-based philanthropist Frederic C. Hamilton, the museum’s Chairman Emeritus, bequeathed in January 2014 from his private collection to the museum—the largest gift ever given to the museum. Following the February 9 closing of Passport to ParisNature as Muse will reopen on February 12 and remain on view through March 23, 2014. Entry to the exhibition will be included in general admission.

It displays the stunning work of nineteenth-century impressionist artists, including Claude Monet, Berthe Morisot, Camille Pissarro, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Alfred Sisley.

Focusing on landscape paintings, this exhibition will feature about 36 artworks from the private collection of Frederic C. Hamilton and the DAM’s own holdings. This is the first time that the masterworks from Hamilton’s private collection will be on view to the public.

In the beginning of the nineteenth century, artists took their easels and paints and worked outside, freed from the constraints of studio space and light. Utilizing loose brushstrokes and a soft color palette, the impressionists told the story of the French countryside through their canvases. The DAM is producing an illustrated catalog for the exhibition.

A special exhibition ticket for Passport to Paris will give visitors access to Court to CaféNature as Muse, and Drawing Room, and extended hours are scheduled to occur throughout the exhibition's run. Find more details on the Ticket Information page.
