This exhibition highlights Normandy, because there are number of reasons to acknowledge Normandy as the birthplace of Impressionism! Halfway between Paris and London, Normandy has been the open-air studio of many famous painters for over a century. For several decades, Normandy would be the preferred outdoor studio of the Impressionists as Monet, Degas, Renoir, Gauguin, Sisley… who would all experiment with their art here on a constant quest for originality and innovation. You will discover many fantastic artworks, made by the greatest artists of this time, relying always on Nature, the richest source of inspiration for the history of art. These painters have been involved in the creation of an esthetic of light full, color, and the sweetness of the art living. The exhibition focuses mainly on the Nature and the Normandy’s landscapes…
The aim of The impressionists in Normandy is to evoke the decisive role played by Normandy in the emergence of the Impressionist movement, through exchanges between French and British landscape painters. From a historical to a geographic approach, the exhibition then shows how the Normandy landscape, especially the quality of its light, was critical in the attraction that the region had on the Great Impressionist Masters…
