Online Collections, May 2020

Dancers, Edgar Degas, 1897, from the collection of: Detroit Institute of Arts

Because many of the nation’s finest art institutions are still temporarily closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, we invite you to explore online the wonderful collections available in American museums.

This month, consider a gem of an exhibition that was on view at the Detroit Institute of Arts in 2015: “Ordinary People by Extraordinary Artists: Works on Paper by Degas, Renoir, and Friends,” now available here. Additionally, consider visiting the beloved Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum's website, where you can view not only its outstanding works of art but the spaces they inhabit by clicking on individual rooms.
