The Metropolitan Museum of Art, known as Met, is one of the largest and most important museums in the world and is home to a huge collection of works of ancient, oriental and European art. Currently on display is a Paul Cézanne exhibition titled “Madame Cézanne.”
Cézanne’s works– oil paintings, drawings, and watercolors– depict periods of his life with Hortense Fiquet, his wife, the mother of his only son, and his most painted model in the 1890s. The exhibition explores the profound impact that Cezanne’s portraits had on Hortense.
Among the 29 portraits the artist made of Hortense are “Madame Cezanne in the Conservatory” and “Madame Cezanne in a Red Dress” – both present in the Metropolitan collection.
The exhibition began on November 19, 2014 and is available until March 15 of this year.
Located at 100 5th Ave and 83rd St.
