The pieces in the exhibition will be selected from the private collection of Stanley and Ursula Johnson. Although the Johnson Family Collection is well known, only one substantial exhibition from the holdings has ever been shown: Cubism and La Section d'Or in 1991. This is a rare opportunity to showcase a substantial selection of items, which will constitute an exhibition both enjoyable for the general public and thought-provoking for the specialist. During the French Revolution, artists began to give as much attention to scenes from contemporary battles as their predecessors had to those from the Bible and antiquity. This trend was accelerated by the two greatest French Romantic artists, Gericault and Delacroix, who found heroism and pathos not only in war, but also in peace. Among the Impressionists, Manet in particular was notorious for his increasingly sophisticated compositions drawn from everyday bourgeois life, blurring the boundaries between portraiture and genre painting.
