Old Masters Now:
Celebrating the Johnson Collection

3 November 2017 - 19 February 2018
Philadelphia Museum of Art | Philadelphia, USA

Marking the centenary of the remarkable bequest of John Graver Johnson to the city of Philadelphia, Old Masters Now focuses on one of the finest private collections of European art ever assembled in the United States.

This major exhibition includes masterpieces by key figures of the Renaissance such as Botticelli, Bosch, and Titian; important seventeenth-century Dutch paintings by Rembrandt, Jan Steen, and others; and works by American and French masters of Johnson's own time, most notably Winslow Homer, John Singer Sargent, and Édouard Manet and Claude Monet.

Old Masters Now will also provide a behind-the-scenes look at the collaborative work of the Museum's curators and conservators who have worked with the collection since it was entrusted to the Museum's care, exploring a host of fascinating questions ranging from attribution to authenticity.
