Exhibition Highlights

The Renoir Returns is a free exhibition at the Baltimore Museum of Art, March 30– July 20, 2014.

More than 60 years after its theft from the BMA, Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s On the Shore of the Seine (c. 1879) returns to public view! A special two-gallery exhibition reunites the 5 ½ -by-9 inch painting with more than 20 masterworks bequeathed to the BMA by visionary Baltimore collector Saidie May, who purchased the Renoir in 1925.

Highlights of the two-gallery exhibition include masterworks such as Piet Mondrian’s Composition V (1927), Paul Klee’s Traveling Circus (1937), Joan Miró’s Portrait No. 1(1938), and André Masson’s There Is No Finished World (1942), which demonstrate May’s role as an early champion of pivotal 20th-century artists.

Curated by Senior Curator of European Painting & Sculpture Katy Rothkopf.
