1,500 Renoirs, 1,000 Monets, 900 Pissarros; without Paul Durand-Ruel there would be no Impressionist masterpieces.

Actor Richard E. Grant gives a tour of the National Gallery’s spring blockbuster Inventing Impressionism, a celebration of art dealer Durand-Ruel who championed a revolutionary group of artists painting real subjects in vivid, atmospheric colours and en plein air.

Inventing Impressionism is on at the National Gallery, London until 31 May 2015, 50% off with a National Art Pass.
