Impressionism. Pastels Watercolors Drawings

Until 13 May 2012

The exhibition presents more than 200 pastels, watercolors and drawings of the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists with the primary goal of demonstrating the outstanding position of their work on paper. This is the first international show dedicated exclusively to this theme. Particularly among the artists of Impressionism and Post-Impressionism, drawing achieved a ranking equal to that of painting; an equality that would prove to be pioneering for modernity.

 While the paintings of Monet, Degas, Renoir, Pissarro, Manet, Seurat, Signac, Cézanne and Gauguin enjoy great popularity, their at least as impressive work on paper is much less well-known. It was thanks to these artists in particular that the drawing, in addition to its mainly secondary usage as preparatory study material, also received a primary function and was able to redefine itself as a complete, independent work of art.
