Romantic Bronzes Open House
Come celebrate the opening of the upcoming Museum exhibition Romantic Bronzes organized by the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. This exhibition showcases more than 30 extraordinary works by the 19th-century French sculptor Antoine-Louis Barye that Mrs. Nelson L. St. Clair Jr. generously donated to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA) over the past 20 years. It is both a celebration of this special donation and an invitation to learn about the various motivations and techniques involved in the art of bronze casting in the age of Romanticism.
Antoine-Louis Barye is among the most original artists to emerge from the Romantic movement in France, and today he is recognized as one of the most important sculptors of the period.
Museum admission will be free for the day and tours by NSLM staff will be provided at 10:30 am, 12:00am, and 2:00pm. No rsvp is necessary. Just arrive for your preferred timeslot and enjoy the tour!
