Crocker Art Museum
The first exhibition focused on French Impressionism to come to the Crocker Art Museum,Monet to Matisse: Masterworks of French Impressionism from the Dixon Gallery and Gardens provides a panorama of one of the most revolutionary movements in 19th-century art. With paintings by Claude Monet, Pierre Auguste Renoir, Alfred Sisley and others, the exhibition examines radical Impressionist innovations, which are still being felt even today. In the age of drastic change that created modern Paris, these artists re-examined their world and ways to depict it, creating new subjects and new perspectives, from plein-air landscapes to scenes of Parisians at leisure. The exhibition also includes Impressionist precursors such as Camille Corot and Gustave Courbet, and features key Post-Impressionists and Modernists who followed, including Henri Matisse, Paul Gauguin, and Paul Cézanne.
