Impressionism: The Art of Life
29 September 2018 – 13 January 2019
The French Impressionists’ depictions of everyday life are explored in this unique exhibition combining paintings and sculpture.
Spanning the period from the early 1860s to the beginning of the First World War, this exhibition includes works by world-renowned artists such as Paul Cezanne, Edgar Degas and Pierre Auguste Renoir.
By including in equal parts painting and sculpture, works from lesser known sculptors such as Dalou will be seen alongside more widely recognised works by Impressionist painters.
The display is divided into four key areas relating to everyday occurrences: maternity, leisure, work and the home. Highlights include Alfred Sisley’s tranquil street scene, 14 July at Marly, France (1875) and Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s oil-painted A Woman Nursing a Child (1894).
