Café Art: L’Art français dans la Collection Havemeyer

Wednesday 20 February 2013 17:30-19:00


The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York houses the astounding works of art collected by Louisine and Harry Havemeyer which includes French paintings and glass. This Café Art will take a closer look at this couple, who were among the first Americans to acquire Impressionist art, and at the particular works they chose for their collection.
