Mary Cassatt - In the LogeThe row of buttons on the tan kid gloves, the black ruffle edging the sleeve, the shimmering pearl earring, the black chapeau tilted just so: the titian-haired woman peering intently through her opera glasses in Mary Cassatt’s 1878 oil In the Loge is as much a fashion plate as a theater devotee. For Impressionism, Fashion, and Modernity, the Metropolitan Museum of Art has gathered some 80 Impressionist canvases, along with clothing, accessories, photographs, and prints, to illustrate how Cassatt, Monet, Manet, Renoir and the other painters in their circle used the latest style of dress as analogs to their new style of painting. The show includes iconic, rarely loaned masterpieces from museums in Boston (the Cassatt), Chicago (the spectacular Paris Street; Rainy Day), and Paris (Monet’s Luncheon on the Grass), among others. - Sylviane Gold

Venue Description: Sun.-Thurs., 10am-5:30pm; Fri.-Sat., 10am-9pm. Recommended admission: $25.
