Durand-Ruel’s brave decision to exhibit the Impressionists in New York in 1886 introduced enlightened, wealthy Americans to modern French painting. In doing so, he not only filled great American galleries with Impressionist masterworks, but also kept impressionism alive at a time when it faced complete failure. But just who were they really? Why and how did they paint? What lies behind their enduring appeal?
To help answer these questions, enjoy secured, unique access to a major new exhibition focusing on the 19th-century Parisian art collector Paul Durand-Ruel, featuring the works of Cezanne, Monet, Degas, Renoir and many more. This eagerly anticipated exhibition is perhaps the most comprehensive ever held about the Impressionists.
Don’t miss this exclusive look to one of the most revered art movements of all time!
