From Paris: A Taste for Impressionism
7 July – 23 September 2012
More than 70 paintings are travelling to London this summer, and the walls of the Royal Academy's Sackler Wing will be hung with works by Degas, Manet, Monet, Morisot, Pissarro and Sisley, along with an exceptional group of more than 20 paintings by Renoir.
Don't miss Among the highlights on loan from the Sterling and Francine Clark Art institute in Williamstown, Massachusetts, is a superb collection of French 19th-century art, including several Impressionist masterpieces. The exhibition also features examples of the work of some leading French artists of the period who worked in different styles, including the pre-Impressionist landscape painters Corot and Théodore Rousseau, the academic figure painters Bouguereau and Gérôme, and the Post-Impressionist painters Gaugin and Toulouse-Lautrec. Expect to see Parisian cityscapes; intimate interiors; ballet dancers and horses; marine views; scenes of everyday life; nudes; still lifes; portraits and luscious Orientalist scenes.
