French Impressionism: Masterpieces from the Ordrupgaard Collection

"Monet is nothing but an eye, but what an eye." That is how Paul Cézanne appreciated his colleague Claude Monet, who sought to capture an immediate impression in a given moment in his paintings. For him and other Impressionists, a personal experience from the nature or city and plein-air painting were important.


The artworks full of light and colours will be shown at an exhibition, which will present a unique collection of French art from the Ordrupgaard Museumin Denmark. The display will especially show Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Pierre Auguste Renoir, Alfred Sisley or Camille Pissarro, but the viewer will also be able to see artistic overlaps with other artistic tendencies. Romantic painting will be represented by Eugène Delacroix and the realistic method by Gustave Courbet or the artists of the so-called Barbizon school, such as Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot and Charles-François Daubigny. The outstanding works from the collection of sixty paintings will also include chef d'oeuvres by post-Impressionists Paul Cézanne and Paul Gauguin.

Until 1. December 2019


The retrospective exhibition will present one of the most renowned artists of the 20th century, Alberto Giacometti (1901-1966) for the first time in the Czech Republic. His distinctive elongated figures, which started to appear in 1947 with L’Homme au doigt, are an instantly recognisable icon of Modern Art. The exhibition was prepared by the National Gallery in Prague and Fondation Alberto et Annette Giacometti; it brings together over 100 works including, showcasing the full evolution of the artist’s career across five decades.
