This show of intimately scaled paintings by impressionists and post-impressionists, belonging to the National Gallery of Washington, will be exhibited at the Legion of Honor of the Museum of Fine Art of San Francisco.
The exhibit explores the idea of painting “en plein air,” which was central to impressionist art, and reveals the sense of intimacy characteristic of these small paintings.
Broad landscapes, portraits of families outside in nature, still lives and artist studies are the themes touched on by the great masters of the time—among them Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Paul Cézanne. The show’s catalog accompanies the reader in a voyage among the timeless masterpieces gathered here.
