Te Ihomatua | Gallery on 4Previous Exhibition
In the late 1800s, the impressionists transformed art on both sides of the Atlantic.
Abandoning the studio for the outdoors, they captured the changing world around them with broad brushstrokes and bold, unblended colours. Whether painting the boulevards of Paris or the farms of New England, they brought a new intimacy and immediacy to their subject matter: the everyday experience of modern life.
The works reproduced here are just a selection of the more than 60 paintings, sculptures, and prints on display. All works are drawn from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston – one of the world’s great impressionist collections.
This exhibition was organised by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
