Turner to C (c)zanne
2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 31 (60 minutes)
Welsh sisters Gwendoline and Margaret Davies amassed an amazing collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings at a time when modern French art was largely ignored in Britain. The collection, which was bequeathed to the National Museum Wales, features such artists as Turner, Monet and van Gogh. The works chronicle the evolution of modern art, from the mid-1800s to the early 20th century, and 53 pieces were assembled as a traveling exhibition, visiting five museums in the United States. This film examines the lives of the sisters and explores select masterpieces from the exhibition.
