This is the first time these works have been exhibited in LA and include Renoir's Impressionist marvel, "Luncheon of the Boating Party." The show runs Oct. 17 to Jan. 9 and takes over several LACMA galleries. One entire gallery is devoted to van Gogh paintings done in the last two years of his life. Another gallery focuses on Picasso and Matisse. The show also includes works by Bonnard, Cezanne, Daumier, Degas, Gauguin, Monet, Kandinsky and Klee.
