From The Musée Du Luxembourg Paris, National Gallery London and Philadelphia Museum of Art Showing exclusively at the Eden Cinemas on Tuesday 26th May at 8pm is ‘The Impressionists’. Featuring the work of the world’s most popular artists including Cezanne, Monet and Degas; the film also goes into depth as to who these people really were; their art and that which lies behind their enduring appeal.
The film has secured unique access to a major new exhibition focusing on the 19th century Parisian art collector Paul Durand-Ruel, the outspoken champion of Impressionism. This eagerly anticipated exhibition is perhaps the most comprehensive ever held about the Impressionists. Durand-Ruel’s brave decision to exhibit the Impressionists in New York in 1886 introduced enlightened, wealthy Americans to modern French painting. In doing so, he not only filled great American galleries with Impressionist masterworks but also kept impressionism alive at a time when it faced complete failure. This energetic and revealing film will tell his remarkable story along with that of the Impressionists themselves.
Tickets for ‘The Impressionists’, are priced at just €10. Visit www.edenculture.com.mt for online bookings and more.
