Gustave Caillebotte
Gustave Caillebotte (1848-1894) was a French painter who was a member and Patron of the artists known as the French Impressionists. He painted in a more realistic manner than the Impressionists because of his interest in the new science of photography. Caillebotte is best known for his paintings of urban Parisian life. Paris Street; Rainy Day (Rue de Paris; temps de pluie), 1877 is his most famous work.

Tuesday, February 20: Noon to 2 PM.

The Ballets Russe
The Ballets Russe was an itinerant Russian ballet company based in Paris that performed between 1909 and 1929 throughout Europe. The company never performed in Russia, where the Revolution disrupted society. The impresario Sergei Diaghilev created the most influential ballet company of the 20th century. With sensational composers like Igor Stravinsky, artists, set and costume design by Pablo Picasso, and dancers Vaslav Nijinsky and Anna Pavlova, The Company was a sensation worldwide.

Tuesday, March 27: Noon to 2 PM.
