In an international exclusive, the NGV presents a major exhibition of more than 100 masterworks of French Impressionism in partnership with the Museum of Fine Arts Boston (MFA), an institution world-renowned for its rich holdings of Impressionist paintings. 

French Impressionism charts the trajectory of the late-nineteenth century artistic movement, highlighting the key milestones and figures at the centre of this period of experimentation and revolution in modern art. 

Part of the Melbourne Winter Masterpieces exhibition series, French Impressionism features works by Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Edgar Degas, Camille Pissarro, Mary Cassatt and more – including 79 works that have never before been exhibited in Australia. These important loans from the MFA’s collection provide a rare opportunity to see a significant grouping of Impressionist masterworks in Australia. 

The exhibition evokes the artistic energy and intellectual dynamism of the period by placing emphasis on the thoughts and observations of the artists themselves.
