BUS TRIP TO ART GALLERY OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA FOR
COLOURS OF IMPRESSIONISM : MASTERPIECES FROM THE MUSÉE D'ORSAY, PARIS
Wednesday 18 April
More than 65 Impressionist masterpieces from the renowned collection of the Musée d’Orsay in Paris feature in a major exhibition at the Art Gallery of South Australia.
Colours of Impressionism: Masterpieces from the Musée d’Orsay charts the revolution of colour that lies at the very heart of Impressionism and includes master works by Monet, Renoir, Manet, Morisot, Pissarro and Cézanne, among many others.
From the dark tones of Manet's Spanish-influenced paintings, to the rich green and blue hues of the French countryside as painted by Cézanne, Monet and Pissarro, to the rosy pigments of Renoir's and Morisot's female figures, the exhibition traces the development of colour in the Impressionists' radical reshaping of painting in the nineteenth century.
It was a great success thanks to the excellent planning by Pauline Reid.
