Color and Light. The Neo-Impressionist Henri-Edmond Cross

Exhibition from July 27 to November 4, 2018

This exhibition devoted to the Neo-Impressionist Henri-Edmond Cross (1856–1910) will span the artist’s entire career. Born in Douai, he discovered the light of the South of France in 1883, where he settled for good in 1891. At the beginning of the 20th century, together with Paul Signac, he was regarded as one of the fathers of modern art. The exhibition will emphasise his role in the history of the liberation of colour and his impact on 20th-century avant-garde artistic movements.

Exhibition organized by the musée des impressionnismes Giverny in collaboration with the Museum Barberini, Potsdam.

With the exceptional support of the musée d'Orsay.
