John Buchanan and Guy Cogeval Discuss Post-Impressionism on KQED's Forum

Starry Night Over the Rhone by Van GoghThis past Monday, September 27, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco director John Buchanan and Musée d'Orsay president Guy Cogeval appeared once again on KQED's popular Forum radio program. This time they discussed Post-Impressionism and the exhibition Van Gogh, Gauguin, Cézanne and Beyond: Post-Impressionist Masterpieces from the Musée d'Orsay, on view at the de Young through January 18, 2011.

If you missed their live appearance earlier this week, fret not. Although you can't phone in or email with our questions, you can listen to Monday's segment on KQED's Forum audio archive. In fact, the episode is embedded below in this blog post for your listening convenience (after the jump).

It's great to hear both the deYoung d'Orsay curatorial perspectives in this audio clip from KQED. Dressing part of the gallery to reflect the Paris street of the era is a nice idea and an effective means to set the stage for the exhibit itself. Really great work by the deYoung on these Impressionism shows and kudos to Michael Krasny and KQED for helping promote them.
