"Image of the Seine - Impressionists and Japanese Painters" Exhibition
This event has ended.
The Seine, flowing from east to west through Paris, has been a rich source of subjects for a host of painters, who have been inspired by both the beautiful views along its banks in the city and the more pastoral scenery upstream and downstream. This exhibition divides the Seine valley into five regions and presents groups of paintings associated with them. The focus is on Impressionist works, coupled with paintings by Japanese artists who worked in France and other works from the mid nineteenth and the twentieth century. This exhibition offers the opportunity to trace geographically the modern history of painting as well as to explore how these artists expressed their image of the Seine.
