On view at the Denver Art Museum, 100 West 14th Avenue Parkway, Caravaggio's "Still Life with Fruit on a Stone Ledge," Poussin's "Midas Washing at the Source of the Pactolus" and Lorrain's "Landscape with Cowherd Piping" will be displayed on the sixth floor of the North Building. "These represent three great examples bridging the gap between the Renaissance and Impressionism," says Standring. "They paved the way for everything that was happening up until Impressionism. To put it in terms of non-art-historians: They're just great paintings. Period. Stop. End of story. I can't even believe the Denver Art Museum has these paintings in their building."
Tickets are $13 for adults, $10 for seniors and students and $5 for anyone six to eighteen years old. Museum hours vary. For more information call 720-865-5000.
