Art lovers, there really is a place for you in Las Vegas. Works by Vincent Van Gogh, Edgar Degas, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso and other artists are coming to the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art at the Bellagio Las Vegas.
“Town and Country: From Degas to Picasso” illustrates each artist’s efforts to convey the “growing urbanization” in the U.S. and Europe during the 19th and early 20th centuries, according to a news release.
The show, organized in partnership with the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, showcases pieces that contrast industrialized cities teeming with factories and soaring numbers of residents with the idyllic and pastoral countryside.
Works in the show include Van Gogh’s “Weaver,” which was painted in 1884, and “Mountain Landscape From Clavadel,” created in 1925-26 by German artist Ernst Ludwig Kirchner.
The gallery’s current exhibition – a collection of photographer Yousuf Karsh’s iconic celebrity portraits — will close Sept. 5.
“Town and Country” opens Sept. 23 and stays through Feb. 20.
Tickets cost $16 for adults; children 12 and younger go free.
The gallery is open 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily with free docent-led tours at 2 p.m. daily.
