Normandy, studio of the Impressionists in the heart of Paris

Published on 02-28-2016 Agenda

Called ‘The Outdoor Studio: Impressionist Normandy', the Jacquemart-André Museum's exhibition evokes the decisive role of the Normandy region in the emergence of this pictorial movement.

Turner, Sisley, Monet, Renoir, Gauguin, Pissarro, Caillebotte, Signac… All are at this 19th-century jewel-box that is the Jacquemart-André Museum. ‘The Outdoor Studio: Impressionist Normandy ‘ presents 50 prestigious works from private collections and European and American institutions. They belong to what was a new pictorial genre in the 19th century: the outdoor landscape. After England, the vogue for this type of picture was deployed in Normandy in the 1820s, transforming this area into a destination for avant-garde painters. This trend was fuelled by its architectural heritage, varied landscape and, on its fashionable beaches, a wealthy international clientele.
