McNay Art Museum Presents Paris: Notre Dame and Beyond –And You Will Not Want to Miss Out

The recent fire at Notre-Dame Cathedral served as a reminder of the special place Paris holds in the hearts and minds of people around the world. Even those who haven’t traveled to the City of Light know it as an iconic world center of culture, history, and art. Paris: Notre Dame and Beyond, drawn entirely from the McNay Art Museum’s collection, celebrates Paris’ monuments and marvels.

Join us at McNay Art Museum for a chance to explore this eye-opening exhibition on Tuesday, January 7th! Highlights include eight large-scale color lithographs by Henri Rivière, offering a soaring view of Paris from the heights of Notre-Dame. Eugène Viollet-le-Duc’s much-loved spire—which collapsed in the April fire—is hauntingly visible as it towers over the transept of the cathedral.

Paris: Notre Dame and Beyond is presented as a complement to the McNay’s installation, Mary Cassatt’s Women. While Cassatt’s art focused on an interior, domestic, and familial world, the artists’ work in this unique installation features cityscapes during Belle Époque, the beautiful era in which Cassatt lived and worked in Paris. The exhibit will be available to view until February 23, 2020.

This exhibition is organized for the McNay Art Museum by Lyle W. Williams, Curator of Prints, and Drawings. Lead funding is most generously provided by the Elizabeth Huth Coates Exhibition Endowment and the Arthur and Jane Stieren Fund for Exhibitions.

The McNay Art Museum engages a diverse community in the discovery and enjoyment of the visual arts. Admission prices will vary and are available to view online at www.mcnayart.org.

Community interaction is an important part of life, which is why Waterford Park Apartments in Converse, Texas is urging you to join in the all of the excitement at this event! Don’t be shy—plenty of fun awaits in the greater neighborhood beyond our beautiful apartment community.
