The Art Gallery of South Australia exclusively presents Impressionism: Masterpieces from the Musée d’Orsay from the famed French institution, Musée d’Orsay. The celebrated collection of masterpieces features the work of more the sixty-five renowned Impressionist artists, charting the revolution of colour that lies at the heart of what is arguably the world’s most loved art movement.
Staged in The Elder Wing, one of Australia’s few nineteenth-century gallery spaces, the show has been deemed ‘the most important exhibition ever to be shown at the Art Gallery of South Australia’ by director Nick Mitzevich. ‘With so few Impressionist works held in Australian collections, the exhibition presents a rare opportunity for Australians to see the movement’s radical evolution of colour.’
Some of the highlights of this outstanding exhibition include Monet’s celebrated work, La Pie (The Magpie), a work from the 1860s painted by the artist in the open air. Alongside this hangs other celebrated masterworks by Renoir, Manet, Morisot, Pissarro and Cézanne, among many others. Talk about a star-studded lineup!
