Exhibition 'Making an Impression: Prints by Manet, Pissaro and their Contemporaries' in Wolverhampton Art Gallery
This stunning new exhibition showcases the work of masters of 19th century French Impressionism including Manet, Pissaro, Cézanne, Renoir and more.
The exhibition explores the ways in which Impressionist artists embraced advances in artistic technology to experiment with etching, lithograph and drypoint printing techniques to capture fleeting moments; blurring the boundaries between drawing, photography and printing. More than 30 works feature in the show and explore themes including The City and Modern Life, Portraits and Landscape and Labour.
Wolverhampton Art Gallery is one of the first venues to host this new and prestigious touring exhibition from the Ashmolean Museum, University of Oxford. Many of the pieces in the exhibition are being displayed for the first time.
