Shaheen Collection of French WorksWed 11/17 - Fri 12/31
The Doris and Shouky Shaheen Collection focuses on French art of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Within this timeframe, the paintings represent an array of styles, including the pre-Impressionist realism of Eugène Boudin’s harbor views, the shimmering Impressionism of Claude Monet’s and Camille Pissarro’s landscapes, and the expressive modernism of Amedeo Modigliani’s and Henri Matisse’s figure studies.
Atlantans long have benefited from the Shaheens’ strong philanthropic spirit in the form of important gifts to numerous institutions across the city. The gift of their remarkable collection of French masterworks will forever enrich the lives of all those who visit the High Museum.
