Musée des impressionnismes Giverny

Brussels, an Impressionist capital

From 11 July to 2 November 2014

Belgium, which won its independence in 1830, experienced a period of exceptional prosperity during the 19th century. With early industrialisation and a favourable liberal context, it emerged as one of the global economic leaders by the end of the century. This economic vitality generated rapid urbanisation accompanied by a demographic explosion, but also an unprecedented cultural vibrancy.
Like this flourishing society, Belgian artists explored alternative paths as of the 1860s. A crossroads of the avant-garde movement, the city of Brussels set itself starkly apart with its cultural vibrancy at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. The homeland of Art Nouveau and Symbolism, it was also one of the first to welcome Impressionist and Neo-Impressionist masterpieces at the Les XX and La Libre Esthétique salons.

Traditionally inclined to describe reality, sensitive to the language of colour and light, Belgian painters began to establish themselves on the European scene by asserting their originality within the Impressionist movement. From a very early stage, diverse figures such as James Ensor, Emile Claus and Théo Van Rysselberghe assimilated the lessons of the new painting and asserted themselves with rare independence in the evocation of modern life, the interpretation of landscapes, and portraiture.
Between 1870 and 1914, Belgian painters innovated in their approach to reality, enhanced by a more free technique in the treatment of brushwork, light and colour. The exhibition will reveal their originality through some one hundred paintings taken from major European museums as well as large private collections.

Palais Garnier

An architectural masterpiece famous around the world, Garnier's Opéra was the thirteenth opera house in Paris since this institution was founded in 1669 by Louis XIV. The construction was decided by Napoléon III as part of the renovation of the capital city conducted under his authority by the Baron Haussmann. A competition was organised to choose the architect who would design it and Charles Garnier was the winner. The construction went on for fifteen years, from 1860 to 1875, interrupted by many events including the 1870 war with Prussia, the fall of the imperial regime and the Paris Commune. It was eventually inaugurated on 5 January 1875.
