Lectures on C

The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Pioneering Modern Painting

The exhibition features approximately eighty paintings and eight drawings executed by both artists as they worked side by side in Pontoise and Auvers in France’s Oise River Valley. An insightful collection of portraits, still lifes, and landscapes is presented–including many that depict exactly the same motif and that are reunited for the first time since they were created.
