RICHMOND, VA.-The Impressionist landscapes exhibition at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts has been extended for two weeks. The last day to see the show is now Sunday, May 25.

“Landscapes from the Age of Impressionism” presents a dazzling array of 40 French and American paintings by the most popular Impressionist artists – including Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Alfred Sisley, Eugène Boudin, John Singer Sargent, Childe Hassam and William James Glackens.

Important examples by Barbizon and Realist painters such as Charles François Daubigny, Henri-Joseph Harpignies and Gustave Courbet are also on view.

The 40 works are among the finest examples of late 19th- and early 20th-century landscapes from the Brooklyn Museum collection.

“Brooklyn told us the exhibition was available for a two-week extension here, and based on the popular appeal of the show so far in Richmond, we decided the extra time to see the show would be a good idea. People who have intended to visit but haven’t had the time now have two more weeks,” says Robin Nicholson, VMFA’s deputy director for exhibitions.

“Landscapes from the Age of Impressionism” has been shown in South Korea and at the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota, Fla., and at the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh. Following the VMFA showing, it will travel to the Denver Art Museum in Denver, Colo. (June 13-Sept. 7, 2008), and the Portland Museum of Art in Portland, Maine (Oct. 19, 2008-Jan. 4, 2009).

VMFA Director Alex Nyerges says many works in Brooklyn’s “world-class collection” of French and American Impressionist paintings were acquired long before other U.S. art museums were showing such art. The exhibition has been made available while the Brooklyn Museum undergoes renovation. The exhibition’s curators are Theresa A. Carbone, the Brooklyn Museum’s Andrew W. Mellon Curator of American Art, and Judith F. Dolkart, associate curator of European art at the Brooklyn Museum.

The admission fee for the show is $8 for adults and $6 for those age 13 to 18 or those with a full-time student ID. The fee per person for adult or student groups of 10 or more (in one ticket purchase) is $6. Admission is free to VMFA members and those age 12 and younger. Members’ guests’ tickets are $7. Tickets may be purchased at the museum, by telephone (804-340-1405), or on-line (

The Richmond Times-Dispatch and NBC 12 are offering two-for-one discount coupons for admission tickets. Coupons are available in the Richmond Times-Dispatch and on In addition, any employee of the Commonwealth of Virginia with a valid ID is eligible for a two-for-one discount on the purchase of $8 adult tickets.

The Richmond presentation of the exhibition is made possible by VMFA’s Julia Louise Reynolds Fund, the Elisabeth S. Gottwald Endowment, the Lettie Pate Whitehead Evans Exhibitions Endowment, the Fabergé Ball Endowment and the Council of VMFA. The media sponsors are NBC 12 and the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
