Colors of Impressionism tells the story of Impressionism through the colors that painters used at different stages in their careers. From the deep blacks of Manet's Spanish-influenced paintings, to the green and blue landscapes that Cézanne and Monet painted outdoors, to the soft pinks of Renoir's classical female figures, the exhibition traces the importance of color to the Impressionists' radical reshaping of painting in the 19th century. The exhibition features over 60 masterpieces from the renowned collection of the Musée d’Orsay, Paris, including key works by Monet, Renoir, Manet, Pissarro and Cézanne.
Between Worlds is part of the showcase Century of Light, which features two exciting exhibitions on art from the 19th century, a post-Enlightenment era of innovation and change. Together with Between Worlds: Raden Saleh and Juan Luna, the show demonstrates the range of painting styles and art movements that emerged in Europe during this formative period.
