From The Phillips Collection

One of the greatest exhibitions in Denver Art Museum history opens October 4, 2003. El Greco to Picasso from The Phillips Collection is an exceptional compilation of European masterworks by 32 of the world's most renowned and beloved artists.

El Greco to Picasso, ending January 4, 2004, showcases 53 paintings and sculpture from the mid-1800s through the 1930s, and the earlier masterpieces that inspired them. The line-up of luminaries includes greats such as Pablo Picasso, Vincent van Gogh, Henri Matisse, Edgar Degas, El Greco, Claude Monet, Pierre Renoir and more.
Visitors' senses will tingle as they are afforded the unique opportunity of experiencing the grandeur of life in the exhibition showstopper, Luncheon of the Boating Party by Pierre Renoir. Although it is one of the world's most famous French Impressionist paintings and has been seen everywhere from movies to mouse pads, Luncheon of the Boating Party has only left the Phillips Collection once in the past fifteen years.

October 4, 2003 - January 4, 2004, El Greco to Picasso from The Phillips Collection The Denver Art Museum closes its 2003 season with this stunning exhibition of 53 paintings and sculptures by European master artists including Monet, Matisse, Degas, Rodin, and Kandinsky. Most of the art is from the mid-1800s through the 1930s-with a sprinkling of paintings by influential earlier artists such as Goya, Chardin, and El Greco. Among modern masterpieces like van Gogh's Entrance to the Public Gardens in Arles (1888), Picasso's Blue Room (1901), Cézanne's Mont Sainte-Victoire (1886-87), and Daumier's Uprising (1848 or later), the showstopper is Renoir's Luncheon of the Boating Party (1880-81), which has been called his best work.

Duncan Phillips (1886-1966), who acquired it for his museum, called it "one of the greatest paintings in the world." Phillips spent more than 50 years assembling his collection of European and American art, said to be among the best in private hands. The Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C., is his legacy. Rather than put its best-loved works in storage while it builds an expansion, the Phillips Collection decided to share them with five museums around the country as El Greco to Picasso.
