Yesterday, Wednesday November 5, the Columbus Museum took a group of 25 members on an exclusive excursion to see the American art holdings of Henry and Joyce Schwob along with a private tour at the High Museum of Art.
Their first stop during their visit was at the Schwob collection which ranges from mid-nineteenth-century Hudson River School landscapes to mid-twentieth-century figurative works. This private collection of paintings, drawings, and sculptures has particular strengths in the Ashcan group, Pennsylvania Impressionism, and Early Modernism. This was a must see for both the serious scholar and aficionado of American art!

After dining at Buckhead’s Italian restaurant, Pricci, members experienced a private tour of the High Museum’s new exhibition, Cézanne and the Modern: Masterpieces of European Art from the Pearlman Collection. This show included an outstanding selection of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, and modern art, assembled by the collector Henry Pearlman. The centerpiece of the exhibition was a group of 24 oils and watercolors by Paul Cézanne, an artist whose work bridged the two worlds of the Impressionists and modernists, and continues to be celebrated and admired for its innovation, rigor, and beauty.
And you can’t have the perfect membership trip without stopping for a little extra fun!
