"Monet, Renoir, and the Impressionist Landscape"
2000-06-02 until 2000-08-27
National Gallery of Canada
Ottawa, ON, CA

Monet, Renoir, and the Impressionist Landscape is a rich survey of the French landscape from its rise to prominence in the 1850s to the end of the nineteenth century. The exhibition begins with the origins of the Impressionist landscape in the 1850s and 1860s, including early work by Claude Monet in the spirit of the Realist landscape style. It then explores the development of the genre in the 1870s to 1890s, represented by an outstanding group of paintings by Boudin, Monet, Renoir, Pissarro, Sisley, and Cezanne.

The Impressionists' profound influence on French landscape painting is examined as the exhibition concludes with a look at works by other artists in the 1880s and 1890s, including Post-Impressionist artists Gauguin, Signac, and van Gogh.

This exhibition of works drawn from the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston represents some of its most famous Impressionist paintings: Monet's Grainstack (Sunset), Renoir's Rocky Crags at l'Estaque, Degas's Race Horses at Longchamp, Cézanne's Turn in the Road, and van Gogh's Houses at Auvers. Also featured are astonishing paintings by artists whose fame in the late twentieth century has been overshadowed by that of the Impressionist generation. The presentation of Monet, Renoir, and the Impressionist Landscape, a highlight of the National Gallery of Canada's Millennium Program, continues an outstanding series of international exhibitions of French masters, including Degas (1988), Corot (1996), Renoir (1997) and Daumier (1999).

This international touring exhibition presents more than sixty-five extraordinary works that reveal the pioneering vision of the Impressionist painters who revolutionalized the modern landscape. The National Gallery of Canada is the first North American and only Canadian stop on the exhibition's tour.
