Trip Report A Mini-trip to the Phillips Collection -Snapshot

Jump to last reply

Took a quick trip to the Phillips Collection in D.C. As a photographer, the title of the special exhibit "Snapshot: Painters and Photography, Bonnard to Vuillard" held great appeal. It was also a wonderful opportunity to meet up with some friends (P & B).

Here's part of the description from Phillips online info:

"The exhibition features experiments made with the camera by seven figures. Pierre Bonnard, Maurice Denis, Edouard Vuillard, and Félix Vallotton were leading members of the Nabis, a group of French avant-garde artists who sought a new kind of painting inspired by Paul Gauguin. George Hendrik Breitner, Henri Evenepoel, and Henri Rivière responded with equal enthusiasm to the possibilities inherent in the new medium. Snapshot is the largest selection ever assembled of photographs by these post-impressionists."

I drove from Southern Anne Arundel County via the Suitland Parkway. Have mentioned in the past what a nice approach to the city this is. I basically took Constitution Ave. to 22nd St. to Florida Ave. to 21st St. NW where I found a metered spot right in front of the museum (it's at 21st and Q--21st being one-way north and south-something to pay attention to in DC if you are driving).

The Phillips was, I believe a private home (go google for more info please). Until a renovation, it was much more intimate but it's still a great place. If you need a Renoir "Boating Party" fix, it's the place to go.

More to come.
