Next up at Bellagio: ‘Town and Country: from Degas to Picasso’

At the Races in the Countryside,” Edgar Degas.

Las Vegas visitors and locals will soon be able to revisit the Industrial Revolution and the origins of urbanization through the works of Edgar Degas, Pablo Picasso, Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet and more.

Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art recently announced its forthcoming exhibit, Town and Country: from Degas to Picasso, opening September 23. Organized in partnership with the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the exhibit will showcase nearly 50 pieces of art in various mediums, including but not limited to paintings, prints and photographs.

The selections will portray political and social rifts between city and country. Visitors will see depictions of rural towns turned into urban destinations—a fine-art portrayal of urbanization in the United States and Europe during the 19th and 20th centuries.

“’Town and Country: from Degas to Picasso’ will reveal each artist’s interpretation of growth, expansion and development,” Tarissa Tiberti, executive director of Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art, says in a statement. “The artworks will provide a dazzling recount of cities and the countryside during the Industrial Revolution.”

BGFA’s current exhibition, Yousuf Karsh: Icons of the 20th Century, will be on display through September 5.
