The exposition will comprise more than 60 paintings by such prominent artists of impressionism as Manet, Renoir, Monet, Pissarro, Sisley and Degas, as well as canvases by Berthe Morisot, Mary Cassatt, Gustave Caillebotte, Jean-Louis Foren and Paul Gauguin. Among the paintings presented, visitors will see 33 rare paintings from private collections.
The purpose of the exhibition is to trace the history of the development of impressionist painting as a genre in the framework of the events of that time. Impressionism has become synonymous with an era in 19th century art. Landscapes and genre scenes combine the moment of contemplation of the canvas and the recreation of real events of the past.
