How Gary Tintrow, director of the Houston Museum of Art, hijacked an “unprecedented” art exhibition from the Boston Museum of Art in Melbourne, Australia, for the Victoria National Gallery. ?

He only took a phone call. Oh and about $ 800,000.

Rebuilding Ocean’s 11 is a purely seemingly intriguing event. Tintro was at the right place (Air, State) at the right time.

The first plan was to have an “incomparable understanding” to be displayed in the Victoria National Gallery for four months in early 2021. Boston Director Matthew Titelbam has been working on Trans-Pacific Exhibition Logistics since 2017. Tap, and the event’s overseas tour decreased by 25 percent from the first run.

That’s when Tetelbam’s phone rang. “Gary Tintro – our good co-worker, we have been in the same hole for many years – ‘Are you thinking of sending the exhibition to Houston before returning to Boston?’

‘Unparalleled Insights from the Boston Art Museum’

When dying-It opens on Sunday; Wednesday-Sunday, March 27, 2022

Where: Museum of Art, Houston Audrey Jones Beck Building, 5601 Main

Details: $ 12 entry; 713-639-7300; mfah.org

Tintro remembers the words well. “I told him we were open. We are not closed and there are direct flights from Melbourne to Houston.

Six months later, after an emergency fundraiser on behalf of MFAA trustees, he was relocated to Texas from “Impossible Impression.” A collection of 100 masterpieces from the French Impressive and Post-Imperial Movement will open on November 14th at the Audrey Jones Beck Building. Level two galleries are traditionally part of the museum’s permanent collection, although special circumstances have been created in this regard.

“It has the best light,” said Helga Aurish, a European artist of MFA.

Less visible jobs

The Museum of the Arts, many of Boston’s most iconic paintings, and the works of art from the mid-19th century to the end of Massachusetts are rarely seen outside of Massachusetts. So far, fewer than half have visited Lon Star State.

Landscaping settings, visible brushes, accurate lighting images and everyday life scenes are signs of movement. “Before that, nature was despised,” he said.

After the civil war, some Americans began traveling abroad. When the Museum of Fine Arts was founded in Boston in 1870, all the great tours of Europe in the summer were the rage; City leaders began to find Impressionist paintings.

“At that time, Boston was a center of wealth and interest,” says Tetlbam. “He was a very active collector in Impressionism. (Cloud) knew Monet and painted with him. .

In the mid-1800’s, a Paris-based group of artists rebelled against the institution. They put in their own work and created a salon, which at the time was a two-year masterpiece.

Oris likes to call them “new kids on the block.” In fact, many young leaders, including Theodore Rousseau, Claude Monet, Pierre-August Renoyer, Alfred Cisley, and Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, were all members of the Barbison School. There, at the edge of the Fontebel Forest, young artists gathered to paint the landscape and a new movement was born.

Breaking traditions

Which “incomparable understanding” opens up at Barbison School. In total, the exhibition is divided into nine sections. The others are “Boudin, Mentor to Monet;” they are. “Groundwater Lordship and Creativity;” “Impression is still life;” “Renovator Flint ‘Amazing, Improve Nerves,” “Impressions and the City;” And “Monet: From Fontainebleau to Giverny.”

The artists smashed the scenes of the gods, temples, and rivers. They were replaced by images of natural landscapes and relatively modern urban life. Occasionally, Nymphs and other myths were used as a deterrent to the imposition of moral messages.

“Boudin, Mentor to Monet” explores the lifelong friendship between 18-year-old Eugène Boudin and Monet, who entered the Buddhist art supply store.

“Poor Buddy. He’s forever attached to Monet.”

Corot may vary. Buddin is often referred to as the “King of Heaven” for his famous beach paintings and performances on the beach.

In “Water Floor: Lordship and Innovation”, the triangular Sicilian landscape transforms the French bridges from the Fontenbel Forest to rivers, backyards and suburbs. Aurisch suggests that water can act as a glass. Fifty years ago, Cecil’s “Water Works” was designed by Marley (1876). Instead, it is considered a textbook impressionism.

“Renoir: ‘A Fantastic, Nervous Improvisator'” is one of the artist’s favorite shades in the gallery. There, the famous “Dance by Bugival” (1883) captures the central court and pops the color of a popcorn. Gustav Kylebote’s “Man in the Bath” (1884) is nearby. Teitelbaum says it does not travel often; The Museum of the Arts was recently discovered in Boston in 2011.

Impressionist Still Life in response to the Second French Revolution in 1870.

“England loved flowers and jokes,” says Tintro. Since it was the only open market, the artists traveled to England, trying to sell art.

Henry Fantin-Latter’s “Plates of Peaks” (1862) looked at the Dutch lord, though with a slightly different lens – he had a pale orange skin. Tintro: “(Paul) Cesan says that the fruit loves to draw.

The latest gallery “Monet: From Fontainebleau to Giverny” offers an amazing collection of 15 canvases. “Camille Monet and the Child in Argentina” (1875) is particularly difficult to release. Orisch noticed the small pieces of paper in the package. And visitors are tempted to walk along La Cavée, Pourville (1882).

Alternatively, log in to the nearest “incomparable Impressions” popup for repair. When the exhibition opens on March 27, the major works of art will not be seen again outside of Boston.

Teitelbaum looks forward to coming home. And will check his phone calls until the next announcement.
