Brussels, an Impressionist Capital

July 11 - November 2, 2014

A focal point for the European avant-garde movements, Brussels stood out for the dynamism of its cultural life around the turn of the twentieth century.

It was one of the first cities to exhibit the masterpieces of the Impressionists and Neo-Impressionists at the Salons des XX and the Salon de la Libre Esthetique.
From Ensor to Van Rysselberghe, the Belgian painters tended to describe reality and were sensitive to the language of color and light. They compelled recognition through their originality in the interpretation of the landscape, their description of modern life, and portraiture.

This exhibition was organized in collaboration with the Musée d’Ixelles, Brussels.
