Why a museum "of Impressionism"?
For 6 years, the museum of Impressionist Giverny dedicates to know the origins, geographic reach and influence of Impressionism. Throughout the history of Impressionism and Post-Impressionism, the museum reveals the impact on the art of the twentieth century.
Two major exhibitions will be organized for the season. Since 2012, a debate "Around Claude Monet" is held alongside the exhibitions. It revolves around this key figure of Impressionism, the Giverny colony of painters and the Seine Valley.
The museum wants to return the works of artists who are inspired.
This is the case of exhibitions "Bonnard in Normandy" in 2011, of "Impressionism along the Seine" in 2010, presented at the festival "Impressionist Normandy".
The program is an opportunity to put in confrontations and contemporary perspective. In 2009, Joan Mitchell was exhibited in 2010, it was Olivier Meriel and 2012, it was Bernard Plossu and more recently Hiramatsu painter.
At the 5th anniversary of the museum in 2014, an exceptional cultural season open to the world was organized. It was a nod to the history of the museum devoted to American art, an opportunity to discover the influence beyond our borders a largely artistic movement attached to this region.
The year 2015 will be marked by the exhibition on the place of Edgar Degas, within the Impressionist movement. In late July, the audience will follow the footsteps of Claude Monet in his garden through the eyes of five contemporary photographers that offer a new and plural reading mythical place, far from the stereotypical visions.
