In the Mediterranean and particularly the Côte d’Azur, Raoul Dufy found inspiration above and beyond that of the sea. The exhibition at the Musée des Beaux-Arts Jules Chéret showcases a series of paintings inspired by Nice as experienced through the artist's stays and walks here (mainly in 1926, 1927 and 1928, and then between 1933 and 1940) and explore their relationship with Dufy's decorative artwork from the 1920s.

Works from the life estate of Paul Mellon, longtime VMFA donor and trustee, are in the newly reinstalled Mellon Galleries, opening on Friday, January 16. The galleries have been closed for six months to protect the art during a roof replacement. Eleven works have been reframed as a part of the ongoing Mellon reframing project.

The life estate remained with Mellon’s widow, Rachel Lambert Mellon, until her death on March 17, 2014. Mrs. Mellon held a life estate in 26 works of art originally bequeathed to VMFA in 1999 by Mr. Mellon. Among the highlights are six masterworks by Degas, Gauguin, Pissarro, Seurat, Dufy, and van Dongen.
