Beloved for their lush landscapes and sea vistas, the masterpieces of French Impressionism are some of the world’s most recognizable artworks. In a groundbreaking first, Impressionism in the Age of Industry: Monet, Pissarro and more explores the Impressionists in a new way by looking at their fascination with industry, technology, and labour during the rapid industrialization of Paris and France in the 1800s. Opening in Toronto on Feb. 16, this collection of rare and exceptional artworks invites viewers to imagine their own city in the changing streets, lives and landscapes of late 19th century France.
Organized by the AGO, and featuring paintings by Monet, Degas, Van Gogh, Pissarro, and many more, this exhibition features over 120 artworks including prints, sculptures, photographs and period films. It is on view through May 5, 2019.
