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.
