Monet: Impression Sunrise at the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra

This exhibition from the impressionist master, Claude Monet, features world-famous paintings from the Musée Marmottan Monet, Paris including the 1872 work Impression, sunrise, which was the origin for the term ‘Impressionism’. In a major coup for Australian audiences, it’s the first time this painting has been seen in the Southern Hemisphere. The exhibition also includes key paintings by JMW Turner, whose early works inspired Monet, along with other impressionist artists influenced by one of the greatest painters and founders of Impressionism. From waterlilies to seascapes, city and rural landscapes, discover the beauty of natural light, colour and fleeting moments captured by Impressionist masters in a newly designed gallery space.
