The art of the landscape
The inaugural exhibition of the new Museum Barberini will feature Impressionist works by Monet, Renoir and Caillebotte. The exact observation of nature gained importance not only in the natural sciences of the nineteenth century. The Impressionists reacted with painting in the open air to changing phenomena of light and weather phenomena. Their landscapes were no longer historically or symbolically charged. Rather, Impressionist artists were concerned with capturing the present.
The exhibition presents different themes of the landscape painting of the Impressionists, which they transferred to modernity. Find out more about the ‘Impressionism’ exhibition from the Museum Barberini website.
