Third Thursday Art Encounters
offers docent-guided tours of Joslyn's collections and special exhibitions on the third Thursday of each month, beginning at 10:30 am. Designed to appeal to all art lovers, from the well-seasoned to the amateur, these monthly programs are a great way to learn about art with others.


Henri Fantin-Latour (French, 1836 – 1904)
Still Life, 1869

Oil on canvas, 18 x 14 ½ inches, Framed: 24 ¾ x 22 1/4 inches.
Collection of the Dixon Gallery and Gardens (1975.29) 

This vibrant exhibition traces the most significant developments in French painting that shaped the direction of modern art for more than a century. Renoir to Chagall presents the scenes — from ballet to boulevard — that made Paris a magnet for nineteenth- and twentieth-century masters, among them Cézanne, Chagall, Degas, Gauguin, Matisse, Monet, Pissarro, Renoir, and Toulouse-Lautrec.





Presented in partnership with The Nebraska Medical Center's Health & Wellness Club, Art Encounters is free to all. Reservations are not required.  For program details please contact Joslyn's Director of Adult Programs at (402) 661-3862 or sseverson@joslyn.org.
