Impressionist and Post-Impressionist Masterpieces from the Pearlman Foundation opens May 21 at the MFAH

The exhibition will present signature paintings and sculptures from the distinguished Henry & Rose Pearlman Foundation Collection of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist and Modern Art

In the late 19th and into the early 20th century, European artists’ ability to travel along newly industrialized railway lines, and cross paths and share ideas, led to the transmission and evolution of varied artistic styles. Impressionist and PostImpressionist Masterpieces from the Pearlman Foundation will present 38 outstanding works from the renowned collection assembled in the second half of the 20th century by New York collectors Henry and Rose Pearlman. Paintings and sculptures by Cézanne, Manet, Degas, Gauguin, van Gogh, Pissarro, Toulouse-Lautrec, Modigliani, Soutine, Lipchitz and others will be seen within the context of their experience of transience – regional, national, and international. It will explore the friendships the artists developed in Paris, as well as the many varied locations and sites that shaped their work.
