Spend summer with the Impressionists, with two shows that highlight work by rebels who rocked the art world.
The Impressionists sparked a revolution in European art in the late 19th century: they broke from convention, and changed the art world forever. French Moderns: Monet to Matisse, 1850-1950 features more than 60 works of art from the Brooklyn Museum, New York’s renowned collection of European art, as well as a selection from the WAG collection. In this exhibition, you’ll get to know some of the most beloved artists of all time: Cézanne, Degas, Manet, Monet, Morisot, Renoir, Matisse, and many others.
French Moderns is presented alongside The Impressionists on Paper, a second exhibition on view this summer at the WAG. Drawing from the National Gallery of Canada’s (NGC) eminent collection of Impressionist art, The Impressionists on Paper brings to Winnipeg over 20 artworks: watercolours, pastels, drawings, and prints. The show spans three decades, beginning in the 1870s, the decade of the first Impressionist exhibitions in Paris. See landscapes, portraits, and everyday scenes by these revolutionary artists, offering a glimpse into one of the most exhilarating moments in the history of art.
