A look at selected art exhibitions worldwide.

Nagoya, Japan

Millet, Barbizon and Fontainebleau Nagoya/Boston Museum of Fine Arts. Through Aug. 31.

The artists of the Barbizon school, who painted in France in the mid-19th century, aimed to expand landscape painting beyond mythological and aristocratic scenes to include depictions of peasant life. Sixty-four paintings appear in this exhibition, including a number by Jean-Francois Millet (1814-75), whose self- portrait is shown above. The show provides a thorough overview of a style -- more realistic than its predecessors -- that paved the way for Impressionism. nagoya-boston.or.jp

Doha, Qatar

Richard Serra QMA Gallery, Katara and ALRIWAQ DOHA. Through July 6.

The American artist Richard Serra has produced imposing sculptures in lead, steel and other industrial materials since the 1960s. These solo exhibitions bring together work from across his career (along with a new sculpture, "The Passage of Time") at two prominent Doha venues. To coincide with the exhibitions, Mr. Serra has created another new work, "East-West/West-East," a series of four steel pillars, roughly 50 feet high, placed across an expanse of the Brouq Nature Reserve, 40 miles from Doha. richardserraqatar.qa

Venice

The Illusion of Light; Irving Penn: Resonance Palazzo Grassi. Through Dec. 31.

Two exhibitions are running simultaneously at the Palazzo, a space owned by the French businessman and collector Francois Pinault. "The Illusion of Light" displays work by artists who use light itself as a medium -- including the installation artist Doug Wheeler and Dan Flavin, who worked primarily with flourescent lights. The Palazzo is also hosting "Resonance," a retrospective of the American photographer Irving Penn's work. One hundred and thirty photographs are on display, including diverse portraits and a small selection of still-lifes. palazzograssi.it

Paris

From Picasso to Jasper Johns: Aldo Crommelynck's Workshop Bibliotheque Nationale de France. Through July 13.

In the course of his long career, the printmaker Aldo Crommelynck worked closely with some of the 20th century's most prominent artists, including Le Corbusier, Joan Miro and Jasper Johns. In 1963, he set up a studio near Picasso's home in the south of France, and the two created prints there until Picasso's death. This exhibition showcases several of them, as well as work from artists like David Hockney and Chuck Close who worked in Crommelynck's ateliers in France and New York. Above, Richard Hamilton's "Picasso's Meninas," a reimagining of Velazquez's "Las Meninas," is on view in the show. bnf.fr
