Now winter in Quebec City is a different ball of wax entirely. For one thing you get a real winter and that’s becoming just a little difficult to arrange in these climate challenged days. Until February 16, 2014 The William S. Paley Collection: A Taste for Modernism will be showing at the Musee national des beaux-art du Québec.
Quebec City is the only Canadian stop for this touring exhibition. The exhibit consists of 62 paintings, sculptures and graphic works and covers the field from Impressionism and post Impressionism to modernism. Works by Paul Cezanne, Edgar Degas, Auguste Rodin, Paul Gauguin, Toulouse-Lautrec, Matisse, Derain, Pablo Picasso and Francis Bacon are on display.
