The Denver Art Museum (DAM) announced today the extension of Nature as Muse: Impressionist Landscapes from the Frederic C. Hamilton Collection and the Denver Art Museum, one of the trio of exhibitions included in Passport to Paris. Following the February 9 closing of Passport to Paris, Nature as Muse—the exhibition that features the DAM’s recent landmark gift—will reopen on February 12 and remain on view through March 23, 2014. Entry to the exhibition will be included in general admission.
In January, Denver-based philanthropist Frederic C. Hamilton, the museum’s Chairman Emeritus, bequeathed 22 Impressionist masterworks from his private collection to the museum. Nature as Muse traces the development of one of the most beloved art movements in history—Impressionism—through its relationship with the outdoors. This presentation is the first time the collection has been exhibited publicly and was originally slated to close on February 9, along with the rest of thePassport to Paris suite.
