Now through September 2016, four major exhibitions have been — or will be — mounted in France as part of the third edition of the Normandy Impressionist Festival. Get the details here!
Four major exhibitions are scheduled to open over the next two months in France as part of a relatively new festival that celebrates one of the nation’s many intellectual contributions: impressionism. Four different sides of the style will be presented at each show, which begins on April 16 at the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Rouen. This first exhibition will featured works from Impressionism’s founders, including Manet, Monet, Degas, and Renoir. Also opening on April 16 are two other shows: “Frits Thaulow: Landscapes by Nature” at the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Caen, and “Eugéne Boudin: Craftsman in Light” at the Musée d’Art Moderne André Malraux in Le Havre. Finally, on June 25, “Childhood in the Era of Impressionists: 1860-1910” will open at the Musée Eugéne Boudin in Honfleur.
Whether one is to see one or them all, each presents a unique vision of both historical and contemporary impressionism. They will undoubtedly be a fascinating glimpse into the growth and evolution of the style in its native country.
