En Plein Air

Parc de la Boverie, Liège


In the Open Air

The relationship between mankind and nature has never been neutral. Painters of the 18th century, such as Joseph Vernet or Louis-Gabriel Moreau, as well as artists involved in impressionism and its aftermath, such as Monet, Cézanne and Bonnard,  re-examined the depiction of nature in paintings. ‘In the open air’, the first exhibition organised in the wide open spaces of the La Boverie Park, studies via a timeline of 80 works the rise in enthusiasm for the open air, from the 18th century to the present day, which also coincided with the portrayal of new pleasures of the modern world: walks, leisure and strolls.
