"Monet, Manet, and Renoir: Models, Mistresses and Muses"

Sponsored by the Sister Cities and Celebrations Commissions

Tish Robinson, renowned expert on French art and culture, brings to life the inspiration behind the iconic paintings of the Impressionist Masters: Monet, Manet and Renoir. Their paintings all feature familiar images of beautiful young women bathed in sunlight and shadow and depicted in public and private settings in Paris and the surrounding countryside. Who were these women? What was their relationship with the artists? Where lies the truth behind these almost-mythical creatures? Their fascinating and often poignant tales as models, mistresses, and muses will be brought to life, illustrated by these legendary artists.

There is no charge for attending this event, but a voluntary donation of non-perishable food items or a monetary donation benefiting local food pantries is appreciated.

Light refreshments will be served.  Please call Sue at 847-781-2606 or email sue.lessen@hoffmanestates.org by Wednesday, April 19 to make your reservation.
