Join us for a gallery talk exploring the exhibition An American in Paris: Donald Beauregard with executive director Dr. Mark White.
An American in Paris: Donald Beauregard surveys the short yet ambitious career of one of the first artists affiliated with the New Mexico Museum of Art. When artist Donald Beauregard (1884-1914) passed away prematurely at age 29, he left behind an impressive body of work conversant in the latest artistic developments in Europe. Following his study at the prestigious Académie Julian in Paris in 1906-07, Beauregard looked to the avant-garde for guidance and developed a style that blended the innovative experiments of Paul Cézanne, Paul Gauguin, and the early work of Henri Matisse.
