Impressionism and Post Impressionism from the High Museum of Art

Event Details:
February 16, 2012 - May 6, 2012
Location: The Minerva and Raymond K. Mason Gallery

Impressionism and Post Impressionism from the High Museum of Art

Claude Monet, (French, 1840–1926), Autumn on the Seine, Argenteuil, 1873, Oil on canvas, 21 3/8 x 28 7/8 inches, Purchase with funds from the Forward Arts Foundation, The Buisson Foundation, Eleanor McDonald Storza Estate, Frances Cheney Boggs Estate, Katherine John Murphy Foundation, and High Museum of Art Enhancement Fund, 2000.205.

Impressionism and Post Impressionism from the High Museum of Art showcases almost 50 paintings, drawings, and prints by such renowned artists as Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Mary Cassatt, and John Singer Sargent.  The works in this exhibition illustrate the emergence of Impressionism in 1870s France, its evolution to Post-Impressionism, and its later influence on American artists. 

The exhibition commences with works by such pre-Impressionist artists as Eugène Boudin to mark the initial transition from the traditional, academic paintings of the Paris Salon to the loose brushwork and airy landscapes that defined the Impressionist movement.  Paintings by Monet, Renoir, Pissarro, and Frédéric Bazille, the founders of Impressionism, illustrate this radical departure and further convey this movement’s fascination with light filled color and broken brushwork. 

Despite its initial unpopularity with the public, Impressionism spread among artistic circles in France.  By the late 1880s, Impressionism produced various off-shoots that emerged in France that have been called Post-Impressionist.  This latter phase of Impressionism is represented by such artists as Paul Gauguin, Paul Cézanne, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Pierre Bonnard, and Edouard Vuillard.

Artists living abroad, such as John Singer Sargent and Mary Cassatt, were among the first American painters to adopt Impressionism.  By the end of the century, Impressionism and Post Impressionism became popular in continental America.  Paintings in the High’s collection by John Henry Twachtman, Childe Hassam, and Theodore Robinson reveal these artists’ indebtedness to the Impressionists and show the international appeal of Impressionism, a phenomenon that is still with us today.

Impressionism and Post Impressionism from the High Museum of Art

Claude Monet, (French, 1840–1926), Autumn on the Seine, Argenteuil, 1873, Oil on canvas, 21 3/8 x 28 7/8 inches, Purchase with funds from the Forward Arts Foundation, The Buisson Foundation, Eleanor McDonald Storza Estate, Frances Cheney Boggs Estate, Katherine John Murphy Foundation, and High Museum of Art Enhancement Fund, 2000.205.

Impressionism and Post Impressionism from the High Museum of Art showcases almost 50 paintings, drawings, and prints by such renowned artists as Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Mary Cassatt, and John Singer Sargent.  The works in this exhibition illustrate the emergence of Impressionism in 1870s France, its evolution to Post-Impressionism, and its later influence on American artists. 

The exhibition commences with works by such pre-Impressionist artists as Eugène Boudin to mark the initial transition from the traditional, academic paintings of the Paris Salon to the loose brushwork and airy landscapes that defined the Impressionist movement.  Paintings by Monet, Renoir, Pissarro, and Frédéric Bazille, the founders of Impressionism, illustrate this radical departure and further convey this movement’s fascination with light filled color and broken brushwork. 

Despite its initial unpopularity with the public, Impressionism spread among artistic circles in France.  By the late 1880s, Impressionism produced various off-shoots that emerged in France that have been called Post-Impressionist.  This latter phase of Impressionism is represented by such artists as Paul Gauguin, Paul Cézanne, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Pierre Bonnard, and Edouard Vuillard.

Artists living abroad, such as John Singer Sargent and Mary Cassatt, were among the first American painters to adopt Impressionism.  By the end of the century, Impressionism and Post Impressionism became popular in continental America.  Paintings in the High’s collection by John Henry Twachtman, Childe Hassam, and Theodore Robinson reveal these artists’ indebtedness to the Impressionists and show the international appeal of Impressionism, a phenomenon that is still with us today. 

Special Programming & Events
Throughout the Impressionism and Post Impressionism from the High Museum of Art exhibit from February 16 through May 6, TreeCup Café at The Cummer will feature Parisian-inspired fare on Tuesday evenings and The Cummer Store will be stocked with a variety of Impressionist gifts, prints and treasures.  Special events and programs include:

Impressionism and Post Impressionism from the High Museum of Art

Claude Monet, (French, 1840–1926), Autumn on the Seine, Argenteuil, 1873, Oil on canvas, 21 3/8 x 28 7/8 inches, Purchase with funds from the Forward Arts Foundation, The Buisson Foundation, Eleanor McDonald Storza Estate, Frances Cheney Boggs Estate, Katherine John Murphy Foundation, and High Museum of Art Enhancement Fund, 2000.205.

Impressionism and Post Impressionism from the High Museum of Art showcases almost 50 paintings, drawings, and prints by such renowned artists as Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Mary Cassatt, and John Singer Sargent.  The works in this exhibition illustrate the emergence of Impressionism in 1870s France, its evolution to Post-Impressionism, and its later influence on American artists. 

The exhibition commences with works by such pre-Impressionist artists as Eugène Boudin to mark the initial transition from the traditional, academic paintings of the Paris Salon to the loose brushwork and airy landscapes that defined the Impressionist movement.  Paintings by Monet, Renoir, Pissarro, and Frédéric Bazille, the founders of Impressionism, illustrate this radical departure and further convey this movement’s fascination with light filled color and broken brushwork. 

Despite its initial unpopularity with the public, Impressionism spread among artistic circles in France.  By the late 1880s, Impressionism produced various off-shoots that emerged in France that have been called Post-Impressionist.  This latter phase of Impressionism is represented by such artists as Paul Gauguin, Paul Cézanne, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Pierre Bonnard, and Edouard Vuillard.

Artists living abroad, such as John Singer Sargent and Mary Cassatt, were among the first American painters to adopt Impressionism.  By the end of the century, Impressionism and Post Impressionism became popular in continental America.  Paintings in the High’s collection by John Henry Twachtman, Childe Hassam, and Theodore Robinson reveal these artists’ indebtedness to the Impressionists and show the international appeal of Impressionism, a phenomenon that is still with us today.
