'Autumn on the Seine' by Claude Monet

Impressionism and Post-Impressionism from the High Museum of Art

October 22, 2011–May 6, 2012

Featuring more than 100 works from the collections of the renowned High Museum of Art, the Arkansas Arts Center and private collections, this exhibition is a unique opportunity to explore the movement that became Impressionism.

In late 19th century Paris, a group of artists broke from long-standing tradition when they moved outdoors to paint. These artists, the Impressionists, captured the world around them in new ways creating colorful, light-filled scenes of carefree summer outings, riverbanks and seashores, private gardens, public parks, dance halls, cafés and the people who inhabited them.

This exhibition brings together beautiful master paintings and intimate works on paper by French artists such as Claude Monet, Paul Cézanne, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Edgar Degas, Camille Pissarro, as well as works by major Post-Impressionist artists Pierre Bonnard, Édouard Vuillard, Paul Signac and more. In addition, the show features works by American artists, such as Mary Cassatt, Childe Hassam, and Theodore Robinson, who fell full sway under the influence of the Impressionists.
