El Paso Museum of Art Exhibiting Works from Mattisse, Degas, Pissarro and Many More
The El Paso Museum of Art is celebrating the generosity of longtime supporter Gertrude Amelia “Sugar” Goodman with the exhibit Intimate Figures: French and American Prints from the Goodman Gift is now open to the public.
Goodman passed away earlier this year in January, and she was an avid art collector and philanthropist; she promoted many local artists, served as Vice-President of the first Board of Directors of the El Paso Museum of Art Association, and began the Association’s Members Guild to support the purchase of EPMA acquisitions. She also donated almost 200 artworks from her private collection to the El Paso Museum of Art in 2014. http://www.elpasoartmuseum.org/
The new exhibition celebrates her art, life, and spirit and highlights a portion of Goodman’s recent donation and presents some masters not previously represented in the museum’s collections. This new collection includes artwork from the 19th to 20th century with artists such as American Mary Cassatt and Frenchman Henri Matisse, French Impressionists Edgar Degas, Camille Pissarro, and Jean-Louis Forain, American social realists Barbara Latham, Marion Greenwood, John Sloan, and Fritz Eichenberg, and other artists. The free exhibition is open to the public through October 16.
