Monet et les Impressionnistes au Musee Marmottan

The exhibition is curated by the Dimension Art Education Foundation and co-sponsored by the Palace Museum, France's Marmottan Museum, China Times and the Dimension Art Education Foundation. This exhibition is the first time that the National Palace Museum has exhibited European art, and it can be said to be a milestone in the promotion of Western art in Taiwan. From Monet's perspective and life, we will introduce to the Chinese people the Impressionism that changed the history of Western art.

In the special issue of this exhibition, teacher Wang Xiuxiong mentioned: "Impressionism was the pinnacle of the naturalistic tendency in the 19th century, and it also opened the door to the development of today's art." This can be the best annotation for Impressionism. Impressionism emphasizes the change and flow of light when painting outdoors. The painter's vision receives the delicacy of these colors and expresses his impression through the brush. What they noticed was the color and shape of objects dominated by sunlight, which artists before the Impressionists could not imagine. Monet was the first Impressionist, and the name of Impressionism comes from his "Impression: Sunrise".

This exhibition rarely displays many of Monet's famous paintings, such as "Japanese Bridge" series, "Water Lilies" series, "House with Rose Garden View" and other works. It also displays works by many Impressionist painters of the same period. You can get a glimpse of the unparalleled elegance of Impressionism in the 19th century.
