The Open-Air Studio, Impressionists in Normandy

The Open-Air Studio, Impressionists in Normandy

With a scenography created by the noted artist and designer Hubert Le Gall, the exhibition The Open-Air Studio offers fifty prestigious works from private collections and major European and American museums. The 19th century interest in outdoor landscape painting was born in England and found its primary focus in Normandy. Turner, Boudin, Monet, Renoir, Gauguin, Pissarro, Caillebotte and Signac were among the great painters who were attracted by the exquisite scenery and quality of light to be found in this beautiful region halfway between Paris and London. Here we see how Normandy thus played a key role in the history and development of Impressionism. The sea coast paintings of Eugène Boudin, for example, would prove to be a major influence on his Impressionist friends. The tumultuous tides and crashing storms, racing clouds in immense skies and the subtle colour variations of sea and sky on display demonstrate the attraction this region exerted on all the masters of Impressionism.
