Impressive Impressionism

8th February 2016

Students in Year 10 and A-Level Art students in Year 13 visited the 'Impressionist and Modern: Masterworks from the Philips Collection' at the Palazzo delle Esposizioni on Thursday February 4th. The show presents sixty-two paintings from America’s first museum of modern art.  

It was a unique opportunity for the students to see examples of very famous painters works first hand and in chronological order from Goya and Ingres to Delacroix, Courbet and Manet, in close dialogue with the great French impressionist masters as Van Gogh Cézanne, Degas, Monet and Sisley. Central to the exhibition are modern masters who have shaped the artistic vision of the 20th century, including Bonnard, Braque, Gris, Kandinsky, Kokoschka, Matisse, Modigliani, Picasso, Soutine, and Vuillard, along with the Americans Arthur Dove and Georgia O’Keeffe.
