Faithful to nature: open-air painting in Europe, 1780-1870

Exhibition February 2 − May 3, 2020
Plein air painting, which was an integral part of art education in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, was the main practice for avant-garde artists in Europe. Fearless artists such as Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot, John Constable, Simon Denis, Jules Coyne and Andre Giraud, sometimes made difficult trips to paint their landscapes in person in breathtaking places, ranging from the coast of the Baltic Sea and the Swiss Alps to the streets of Paris and the ruins of Rome.

"Faithful to nature"- An exhibition of about 100 oil sketches made outdoors throughout Europe, includes several recently discovered works and explores issues such as attribution, chronology and technology.
