Monet and American Impressionism
As a pioneer of French Impressionism, French painter Claude Monet influenced the artistic trends of the 19th and 20th centuries.
The exhibition Monet and American Impressionism pays tribute to Monet, highlighting 25 American impressionist artists’ works in response to this influence through roughly 50 paintings and 20 prints dated between 1880 and 1920.
As such, the exhibit will be organized into five thematic sections including landscapes, portraits, intimate depictions of women and children, and images of modern life.
Monet and American Impressionism is organized by the Harn Museum of Art in partnership with the Telfair Museums and the Hunter Museum of American Art.
A two day symposium will be held in conjunction with this exhibition at the Harn Museum.
On Thursday, March 19, 2015, from 6:00pm to 9:00pm, in the Chandler Auditorium, two professors and a senior curator will discuss “French Light, American Light : Impressionism and Its Cultural Refractions”, followed by a reception at the Harn Galleria from 7pm to 8pm.
On Friday, March 20, 2015, from 9:00am to 5:00pm, several French and American speakers will participate in a debate with their audience at the Chandler Auditorium, accompanying a lunch reception at the Harn Galleria between 11:55 to 1:30pm.
