Themed Tour: The Bonheur Legacy
Thursday, January 26, 2 p.m.

Auguste Bonheur was the oldest brother in the famous Bonheur Family. Called “the forgotten brother,” he became known as the elite peintre animalier with his bucolic landscapes. His artwork has often been overshadowed by the work of Rosa, his challenging, unconventional sister. View the work of these two artists, their love of animals, and what sets them apart.

See old favorites, discover something new and gain fresh insight into some of our most popular works of art.

The tour meets in the museum lobby at 2 p.m. Free for museum members; included with the cost of admission for nonmembers. Click here to RSVP.
