Denver Art Museum gets enormous gift

Posted By on Mon, Jan 13, 2014 at 4:00 PM

Today, the Denver Art Museum announced it has received it's most significant gift in its history: 22 Impressionist paintings previously owned by Frederic C. Hamilton.

These are the works you can see now in Nature as Muse, one of the three shows that make up the DAM's current Passport to Paris exhibit. We wrote about the show here, here and here. The show will be up through Feb. 9.

From the press release:
The addition of this gift will nearly triple the Denver Art Museum’s current holdings of impressionist artwork and will allow the museum to tell the complete story of this art movement with major works by the most important artists. Hamilton’s collection brings the first Van Gogh, Cézanne, Caillebotte, Boudin and Hassam to the museum’s collection. It also adds four additional Monet works. Coupled with the two paintings the museum previously owned, the DAM can now represent the work of Monet as well as any collection in the country.
