“Elles: Women Artists from the Center Pompidou, Paris,” ends its run at Seattle Art Museum on Sunday (Jan. 13). Seattle was the show’s only U.S. stop for “Elles,” which comprised works selected from a larger show that filled the Centre Pompidou from May 2009 until March 2011. The companion show, “Elles at SAM,” runs through Feb. 17.
Next up at SAM, a true Valentine for fans of great portraitists: “Rembrandt, Van Dyck, Gainsborough: Treasures of Kenwood House, London,” which opens Feb. 14 and encompasses pieces drawn mostly from the collection of Edward Cecil Guinness, 1st Earl of Iveagh, who bequeathed his art to his government. (The artworks are kept at Kenwood House, hence the name.)
