I didn’t go to Paris for these, but Vancouver, B.C. I visited the Vancouver Art Gallery for their exhibition “French Moderns: Monet to Matisse, 1850-1950” in March this year. Here’s a description from their poster:
The works in French Moderns exemplify the avant-garde movements that defined Modern art from the late-nineteenth to early-twentieth centuries, tracing a formal and conceptual shift from depicting the pictorial to evoking the idea, from a focus on naturalism to the ascendance of abstraction.
Before the art, there’s the architecture and interior, an art piece in itself:
Some of the works with their description:
Claude Monet, Rising Tide at Pourville, 1882. Along the Normandy coast.
Eugène Louis Boudin, mentor of Monet. Sur les bords de la Touques, 1895.
Berthe Morisot, Madame Boursier and Her Daughter, c. 1873.
Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Still Life with Blue Cup, c. 1900
Camille Jacob Pissarro, The Climb, Rue de la Côte-du-Jalet, 1875.
Henri Matisse, Flowers, 1906
Gabriele Münter, Nightfall in Saint-Cloud, 1906. (Don’t you wish nightfall is like this?)
Paul Cézanne, The Village of Gardanne, 1885-86.
I like this one the most:
Marc Chagall, The Musician, c. 1912-14
