The Impressionists were the Rebels in the 19th Century Art-World

These painters chose to break away from the European traditional style of painting of their times. Instead they painted outdoors, capturing the changing light and showing how it defined the colors of the moment. They painted with brighter palette of colors and used coarser brushstrokes. Many of them were not appreciated in their life times and some even died penniless.

Exhibition: Monet: Places

February 22, 2020 to June 01, 2020
Museum Barberini Potsdam, Germany

Claude Monet often would choose one subject and paint it again and again, under different lights and weather conditions. He has many such series where he focused on a single subject but painted at different times. This includes the series of the majestic Cathedral in Rouen, the views of Antibes & his paintings from London, Venice and Zaandam.

Monet was never interested in the landmarks per se but rather in the changing light and weather conditions which provided different effects on the subject itself. This exhibition explores Monet’s use of light and color on the many places he painted.
