Highlights of this tour will include works by Edgar Degas, Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Georgia O'Keefe, Mary Cassatt, August Rodin, Frederic Edwin Church, Henry Ossawa Tanner and so many more. The significant collections of works from Asian, African, Islamic, and Indigenous arts will also feature. According to the announcement, the meeting point will be in the Hamon Atrium near the museum's north entrance, under the Dale Chihuly sculptures.

Beyond the artworks themselves, discussions of the lovers, boyfriends, girlfriends, husbands, wifes, mistresses,and paramours will be shared to show how the romantic relationships artists have engaged in have gone on to be immortalized in their work. After the tour is over, you can stay to enjoy the greater collection of the Dallas Museum of Art, which includes more than 24,000 objects dating from as far back as the third millennium BC up through the present day. While you are there, you might also enjoy the Cartier and Islamic Art: In Search of Modernity special exhibition that shows the influence of Islamic art on objects created by Louis Cartier and the designers of the French jewelry Maison over the period of the early 20th century to today.
