Figurative works by the key players of the Impressionist movement.
When they staged their first exhibition in Paris in 1874, the Impressionists introduced the world to a new style of painting. The critics were appalled, the public shocked; yet the group pioneered, and modern art was born. This spring 28 masterpieces by each of the artists who featured in this monumental exhibition go on display in Bath as part of the Holburne’s centenary programme.
Curated by director, Jennifer Scott, it focuses specifically on the Impressionists’ observations of humanity, featuring figurative pieces by leading lights Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Berthe Morisot, Camille Pissarro, Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Alfred Sisley.
