The Max and Muriel Gluck Collection–featuring modern masterpieces by Pierre Bonnard, Amedeo Modigliani, and Edouard Vuillard–forms the nucleus of a group of paintings from the school of Paris. Alongside highlights from this transformational bequest, a gift to the Museum in 1985, are other paintings from the museum’s collection, including works by Edgar Degas and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, and a number of significant loans from the Bloomberg Collection. Together, these present a portrait of Paris from the 1870s to the first decades of the 20th century, when the legacy of Impressionism remained a significant source of inspiration.
