"The outdoor workshop, Impressionism in Normandy" at the Musée Jacquemart-André, Paris
The nineteenth century saw the emergence of a new pictorial genre: the outdoor landscape. This pictorial revolution, born in England, is spreading across the continent and Normandy becomes, during a century, the favorite destination of avant-garde painters. The exhibition evokes the decisive role played by the region in the emergence of the Impressionism movement, through the Franco-British exchanges, the development of a school of nature and the meetings of Saint-Siméon. But it also shows how the landscape and even the lights of Normandy were decisive in the attraction that this region had on all the masters of Impressionism.
