About the Show
FRENCH IMPRESSIONISM: MELBOURNE WINTER MASTERPIECES 2021
In an international exclusive, the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) presents a major exhibition of more than 100 masterworks of French Impressionism in partnership with the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA), an institution renowned world-wide for its rich holdings of Impressionist paintings.
Part of the Melbourne Winter Masterpieces exhibition series, French Impressionism features works by Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Edgar Degas, Camille Pissarro, Mary Cassatt and more – including 79 works that have never-before-been exhibited in Australia. These important loans from the MFA’s iconic collection provide the rare opportunity to see a significant grouping of Impressionist masterworks in Australia.
NGV Senior Curator Dr Ted Gott introduces these Impressionist masterworks and discusses the highlights of the exhibition.
