Japonisms / Impressionisms
Exhibition from March 30 to July 15, 2018
The opening of trade and diplomatic links with Japan in 1868 enabled Western artists to discover artistic forms that were radically different from those they had been taught for centuries.
Impressionist and Post-Impressionist painters were sensitive to the refinement of an art that reflected their own aspirations, paving the way for a veritable artistic revolution.
The exhibition will feature around 120 paintings and prints, from Monet to Van Gogh.
Exhibition organized by the musée des impressionnismes Giverny in collaboration with the Arp Museum Bahnof Rolandseck. With the exceptional support of the musée d’Orsay and the Collection Rau for UNICEF.
