"From the Birth of Impressionism to 20th Century Art" Exhibition
This event has ended.
It was in 1874 that Claude Monet, Pierre Auguste Renoir, Alfred Sisley, and Camille Pissarro, artists who were later labeled Impressionists, held their first group show in Paris. The Impressionist’s revolution, working en plain air in quest of light and color, exerted an enormous influence not only on the Post-Impressionists who came after them but also on the development of twentieth century art as a whole.
This exhibition will present around 170 masterpieces from the Bridgestone Museum of Art collection. In addition to works by such iconic figures in twentieth-century art as Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse, it will include paintings by École de Paris artists such as Leonard Foujita and Amedeo Modigliani, and Baribizon school artists Camille Corot and Charles Daubigny, who helped trigger the birth of Impressionism.
