    The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston presents MFAH Gallery Conversations: Drawing from Nature, Saturday, October 9, at 2:30 p.m. Presented by Dr. Dena M. Woodall, MFAH Assistant Curator, Prints & Drawings. Meet in Lobby of the Audrey Jones Beck Building.

    Drawing from Nature, one of the first exhibitions in the USA devoted exclusively to the landscapes created by the three leading proponents of Impressionism in Germany—Max Liebermann, Lovis Corinth, and Max Slevogt—offers a stunning glimpse at the significant role drawing played in their creative process.

    At the October Gallery Conversation, Dr. Dena M. Woodall, MFAH Assistant Curator of Prints and Drawings and the exhibition´s organizer, leads a gallery talk focusing on the artists´ exceptional mastery of the expressive powers of drawing and printmaking, and how their works on paper both parallel and dialogue with their works on canvas.

    Drawing from Nature: Landscapes by Liebermann, Corinth, and Slevogt is a companion exhibition to German Impressionist Landscape Paintings, also on view at the MFAH.

    Gallery Conversations are open to the public and free with general museum admission. Museum members always receive free admission. Campstools and MFAH listening devices that amplify the presenter´s voice will be provided on a first come, first-served basis. MFAH listening devices are available for loan with a valid photo ID, such as a driver´s license.
