London’s National Gallery Displays Courtauld’s Impressionist Masterpieces

LONDON – A new exhibit at London’s National Gallery is set to feature 26 Impressionist masterpieces on loan from the Courtauld Gallery while the latter undergoes renovation works.

Titled “Courtauld Impressionists: From Manet to Cézanne,” the display traces the development of modern French painting from the 1860s to the turn of the 20th century.

“This exhibition forms a clear and enjoyable introduction to Impressionism and Post-Impressionism: two of art history’s most essential and best-loved movements,” said Anne Robbins, the exhibit’s curator.

The works all stem from the collection of Samuel Courtauld (1876-1947), a textile industrialist fascinated with French Impressionism and a strong predilection for the art of Paul Cézanne.

Courtauld himself is a focal point of the exhibit, which hones in on the collector’s taste, vision and motivation.

Robbins underscored Courtaulds tireless work to spread “a proper understanding and appreciation of modern painting, with a unique approach to art – both visionary and extraordinarily generous.”

The masterpieces include works by Édouard Manet, Honoré-Victorin Daumier, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Georges Seurat and Pierre Bonnard, as well as a few first-rate Cézannes.

The exhibit opens on Sept. 17 and is set to run through Jan. 20, 2019.
