In Bloom explores the development of nineteenth-century French floral still-life painting, and features about 60 paintings by Édouard Manet, Edgar Degas, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul Cézanne, Vincent van Gogh, and others.
The colorful exhibition demonstrates how a traditional genre was reinvented by nineteenth-century artists, as the art world's focus was shifting to modernism. Curated locally by Angelica Daneo, associate curator of painting and sculpture at the DAM. Organized by the Dallas Museum of Art and the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, the DAM will be the last stop for this exhibition.

I’d been spending some quality time with the works on view in anticipation of training our docents to give member tours, and as my eye scanned the elaborately detailed painting, it rested on this easily overlooked detail.
