Turner to Cézanne: Masterpieces from the Davies Collection

National Museum Wales, known for having one of the finest Impressionist art collections in Europe, sent to the U.S. highlights from its remarkable Davies Collection, an extraordinary group of 19th- and early 20th-century paintings that were renowned for its beauty and quality. These works, which helped shape the course of Western art, were assembled between 1908 and 1923 by sisters Gwendoline and Margaret Davies.  The lectures were presented during the time at which the exhibit was on display at the Columbia Museum of Art.
