Revolutionaries: The Impressionists & Post-Impressionists Exhibition

October 22, 2022 - January 7, 2023

Recurring weekly on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday 9:00 AM - 5:15 PM

About the Exhibition Few artistic movements have had such a lasting impact as the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists, who shocked the art world by rebelling against the prevailing classical ideals of their age to embrace new techniques and modern subjects. Revolutionaries: The Impressionists and Post-Impressionists brings together paintings from the 19th and early 20th centuries in order to trace the evolution of this movement. Beginning with the naturalistic landscapes of the Barbizon school, the show explores the transience of early Impressionism and its experimentation with plein-air painting. The Impressionist legacy will be traced through the work of the Neo-Impressionists and Post-Impressionists, particularly in their scientific methodologies and avant-garde use of color.

Opening this fall at M.S. Rau's French Quarter gallery, the selling exhibition features paintings that represent the key ideals of these movements, while also illustrating the diversity within them. From the early plein-air landscapes of Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot; to Claude Monet's light-filled landscapes and Pierre-Auguste Renoir's urban portraits; to Raoul Dufy and Kees van Dongen's explosive use of vibrant color, these works capture the cultural moment of their age, defining on canvas the new modern era that had swept through the Western world.
