Did you #GuessTheArtist correctly? Here’s the full view of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec’s “In the Salon (Au Salon)” (1893), from our collection. As a painter, printmaker, and illustrator, Lautrec's immersion in the theatrical Parisian life allowed him to produce a collection of enticing images of the vibrant and modern Paris.

One of the earthworks artists of the 1960s and 1970s, Robert Smithson manipulated the natural landscape in his work—sometimes drastically, with a bulldozer, and sometimes simply and temporarily, through mirrors, as in “Corner Mirror with Coral” (1969). Experience this work in #GundStudioVisit, our exhibition celebrating gifts from the remarkable Agnes “Aggie” Gund, a longtime Trustee of the Museum. While viewing this artwork Aggie noted, “I always like the Smithsons that are mirrored. Obviously they're very captivating and they show another dimension...you see out differently when you have a mirror. A mirror makes it bigger, smaller, taller, higher.... I think Smithson's idea of putting heaps of things there and having them reflected, it was quite wonderful.” … [Artwork details: Robert Smithson. “Corner Mirror with Coral.” 1969. Mirrors and coral. Gift of Agnes Gund in honor of Ann Temkin]

Claude Monet painted four versions of “The Artist’s Garden at Vétheuil” in summer of 1881. We often assume that the artist worked quickly and out-of-doors. However, Monet’s process for painting these works—two of which are seen here—was more complex. For this view of his garden in Vétheuil, Monet revisited the same scene, possibly moving back and forth between the paintings and making revisions. Although the Gallery’s version (on the right) has always been assumed to be the culmination of the four, its relationship to the other works is not as clear cut as previously believed. The work on the left is from the Norton Simon Museum, as part of a long-term series of loan exchanges between our two museums. These paintings of Monet’s garden are on view together for the first time since they were created more than 100 years ago. See them through August 8 in Gallery 85 on the Main Floor of the West Building. https://go.usa.gov/xQEEh
