CaixaForum Barcelona (Spain) is the only stop in Spain on an international tour organised by the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute to bring these great masterpieces to audiences around the world, an initiative that coincides with the extension of the US gallery.
The exhibition Impressionists. French Masters from the Clark Collection features a selection of masterpieces from the late 19th and early 20th century that represent the entire range of styles and tendencies found in that dynamic period: from naturalist landscapes by artists in the Barbizon School to a range of exceptional paintings by the most outstanding artists of the time: Manet, Monet, Pissarro, Sisley, Degas, Morisot and, above all, Renoir. The show reflects the personal tastes of Sterling and Francine Clark who, over five decades, built up one of the most important collections of Impressionist painting in the world.
The exhibition features a considerable number of works from this important American art museum's extraordinary collections of 19th-century French Impressionism and European painting. The selection of 72 works includes pictures by such great masters as, amongst others, Pierre-Auguste Renoir,
Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Édouard Manet, Berthe Morisot, Camille Pisarro, Pierre Bonnard, Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, Paul Gauguin, Jean-François Millet, Alfred Sisley, Henri de Toulouswe Lautrec, William-Adolphe Bouguereau and Jean-Léon Gérôme.
The international tour began last year at the Palazzo Reale in Milan and continued to the Musée des Impressionnismes en Giverny (France). After CaixaForum Barcelona, this exhibition of French masterpieces will travel to the Kimbell Art Museum, Fort Worth (Texas); the Royal Academy of Arts, London; and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts in Canada. Finally, in 2013, the show will travel to Japan and China.
