Into the Light: French and British paintings from Impressionism to the early 1920s
15 December 2011 – 11 March 2012
Into the Light brings together some of the most significant names working on either side of the Channel including Clausen, Monet, Pissarro, Renoir, Sickert, Sisley, Stanhope Forbes and Whistler.
This exhibition of French and British Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art is something that has never before been undertaken in the south west. Into the Light surveys the production of paintings on both sides of the Channel between the 1880s and 1920s. Complementing the character of the south west, the exhibition explores the themes of coast and countryside.
