Fall Exhibition Roundup

Good things coming in American & European museums this fall! Here are some exhibitions that caught my eye:
*Van Gogh and the Colors of the Night, Museum of Modern Art, New York (12 September - 5 January)
*Van Gogh retrospective, Albertina Museum, Vienna (5 September - 8 December). Includes 50 paintings and 100 watercolors and drawings.
*Hadrian: Empire and Conflict, British Museum, London, until 26 October
*Pompeii and the Roman Villa, National Gallery, Washington DC, 19 October- March 22. Wish I could pile my Roman Art class into a couple of minivans and go see this one!
*Renaissance Faces: Van Eyck to Titian, National Gallery, London, 15 October - 18 January
*Art and Empire: Treasures from Assyria in the British Museum, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, 21 September - 4 January
*Art in the Age of Steam: Europe, America, and the Railway, 1830-1960, Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City, 13 September - 18 January. I made my first visit to the Nelson-Atkins in March 2007: it's a fantastic museum!
*Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs, Dallas Museum of Art, 3 October - 17 May
*Tutankhamun: The Golden King and the Great Pharaohs, Michael C. Carlos Museum, Emory University, installed at the Atlanta Civic Center, 15 November - 25 May. Yep, you read that right: there are TWO King Tut shows in the US this year!
*The First Emperor: China's Terracotta Army, High Museum of Art, Atlanta, 16 November - 19 April
*Mystery and Glitter: Pastels in the Musee d'Orsay, Musee d'Orsay, Paris, 8 October - 1 February. The pastel rooms at the Orsay are among my favorites: generally quiet, generally peaceful, with gorgeous artworks. This show will highlight some of the pastels that usually, by necessity, live in storage. The 'poster image' by William Degouve de Nuncques was on view in the pastel rooms my last visit (May 2007) and held me spellbound.

Thanks for the list. Sheramy. I saw (twice) "Tutankhamun and the Golden Age" while it was in LA. What gorgeous pieces! Anyone with the remotest interest in art, history or Egypt should see it.

I also saw "The First Emperor" in London, but was far less impressed. Very few pieces.

You gave me the idea of a post of my own for Paris shows. Orsay's Pastels, of course, and many others. Monet at Marmottan, Napoleon and Egypt at IMA, Les Miz at Carnavalet, among others. This fall promises to be wonderful.
