About the exhibition
The exhibition will feature works from the Normandy Painting Association of France and the Franciscan Museum in Deauville, including works by French artists such as Delacroix, Courbet, Corot, Manet, Monet and Morisot, and 61 paintings by artists of different art genres showing the transformation of French Normandy style in the early 19th century.
Masters and Landscapes
The Normandy region's stunning landscape, with its winding coastline, changing seascapes and idyllic countryside, provided artists with an endless supply of material to work with. Artists of different styles, from Romanticism, Barbizon, Realism to Impressionism, came to Normandy, and their mutual learning influences made Monet and his era. In the 61 exhibits, you can enjoy the unique landscape of Paris' backyard: the city in northwestern France, and feel the colors and lines of the Impressionists' brushwork.
The Cradle of Impressionism - A High Point of Artistic Change
Impressionism was heavily influenced by the Barbizon School, and the depiction of outdoor light and shadow by Barbizon painters such as Corot, Millet and Dubigny deeply influenced the Impressionists' approach to the world. Barbizon was located in Fontainebleau, south of Paris, but Barbizon painters also flocked to Normandy to work, and it was Barbizon and Normandy that were the cradle of Impressionism. With the boom in railroad traffic, Normandy then became a meeting place for artists. Honfleur and Le Havre, as well as Rouen, saw the birth of growing innovations - namely the Impressionists, Fauvists and other schools.
