The Musee du Louvre in Paris and the Complesso del Vittoriano in Rome will complete upcoming exhibitions with works from two Arkansas museums, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville and the Arkansas Arts Center.

CBM has sent Arthur Fitzwilliam Tait's "The Life of a Hunter-'A Tight Fix' " to the Louvre as part of the "American Encounters: Genre Painting and Everyday Life" exhibition that opens Saturday. The exhibit is part of a four-year partnership between the Terra Foundation for American Art, the High Museum, Crystal Bridges and the Louvre. The painting will be on view in Paris until April 22. When it returns to CBM, it will be hung with Eastman Johnson's "Negro Life at the South" from the High, George Caleb Bingham's "The Jolly Flatboatmen" from the Terra Foundation, and Jan Steen's "Festive Family Meal" and William Mulready's "Train Up a Child," both from the Louvre, May 11-Aug. 12.

The Arts Center is loaning one of its most important holdings, Diego Rivera's "Dos Mujeres" ("Two Women"), given to the Arts Center in 1955 by Abby Rockefeller Mauzé, to Rome this spring as part of a major exhibition, "Picasso, Braque, Leger and the International Language of Cubism," which will also feature loans from the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, the Buhrle Foundation, the Tate in London and Fundacion Televisa in Mexico City. The two women in the painting are Rivera's common law wife, Angelina Beloff, and artist Alma Dolores Bastien. The show will run March 7 to June 30.
