What happens when painters discover photography for the first time? Check out this exhibit at the Phillips Collection in Washington DC:

"Snapshot: Painters and Photography," looks at what seven late-19th-century artists did with their new Kodak hand-held cameras. The exhibition-at the Phillips Collection through May 6-presents more than 200 photographs and about 70 related paintings, prints and drawings by such prominent post-Impressionist artists as Édouard Vuillard, Pierre Bonnard and Maurice Denis. Many of the photos have never been shown before.

Through May 6
