2013 Future Curators Spotlight
Get to know the Albright-Knox’s 2013 Future Curators through the works in the Gallery’s Collection that inspire them.
Claude Monet’s Chemin de halage à Argenteuil (Tow-Path at Argenteuil), ca. 1875
The first thing I love about this painting are the gorgeous colors. They’re both soothing and engaging, and make the image of the coast thoroughly enjoyable. The more you look at it, however, the more you notice. The few people along the path, the growing brush at the side, and the distant mountains all draw the eye, but gently. It is far from underwhelming, and is one of Monet’s most pleasant works.
The Future Curators program is now part of the Gallery’s AK Teens program, presented by First Niagara, which just launched this week.
