One of the most beautiful periods of painting in France, Impressionism changed the relation of representation in painting. Now part of the Musée d’Orsay in Paris is the “Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil” in Rio de Janeiro.
The exhibition brings for the first time in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, a selection of 85 works from the collection of the Musée d’Orsay in Paris,one of the most visited and important museums in the world dedicated to the art of the nineteenth century and the holder of the most important collection of Impressionist, I just keep thinking about who is visiting the museum in Paris now must be disappointed by the absence of many key works from the museum.
The exhibition reflects the history of Western painting in the period – and is divided into 6 parts: “Paris: the modern city”, “The City Life and Its Authors” and “Paris Is A Party,” “Escape from the City”, “Invitation the Journey “and” The Quiet Life “, with works by Camille Pissarro, Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Edouard Manet, Gustave Courbet, Carot, Henri Toulosse-Lautrec, Jules Lefebvre, Paul Cézanne, Paul Gauguin, Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Vincent van Gogh, and other masters. So, only works of wonderful artists in a place that to me is very suitable for exhibition since CCBB architecture dates from the time that was happening impressionism, the nineteenth century.
The exhibition runs until January 13, I suggest to go more than once if possible because the screens of impressionism and post-impressionism deal in essence an element: sensory capture the moment portrayed. For more information click here.
In the coming weeks I will analyze in Visione the lives of some of the artists of that time to begin during the week I will write about one of the founders of Impressionism which is seen as the most influential artist of the nineteenth century by some authors: Manet.
