It tells the story of the art revolution caused by the Impressionist movement. It does so through fifty paintings - hidden treasures previously inaccessible to the general public, that are now on display in Rome at Palazzo Bonaparte, in an exhibition of the same title. How did the Impressionists view the world? What was the reception given to their works? How did they go from being rejected by critics and the public to becoming, in just a few short years, some of the best loved works of art in the whole world?
The two curators of the exhibition, Claire Durand-Ruel and Marianne Mathieu, will accompany audiences along a complex path, where wide-ranging images find an ideal interplay with the analyses made by experts, historians, artists and other figures linked to the world of modern painting and visual culture. The paintings in the exhibition - works by Monet, Degas, Renoir, Manet, Berthe Morisot, Cézanne, Seurat, Signac - will thus be both starting point and arrival in an in-depth study of the paths taken by each individual painter, and the special features of the Impressionist movement.
