This program takes place virtually

Join NGV Senior Curators Dr Miranda Wallace and Dr Ted Gott in this LIVE virtual tour of French Impressionism from the Museum of Fine Art, Boston, an exhibition featuring 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. 

Starting in the Fontainebleau forest with the influence of the Barbizon painters, Wallace and Gott will share lesser-known stories that bring to life the artists, key relationships, moments and themes that define French Impressionism. The 1-hour tour will make over 20 stops, cumulating in the final room, highlighting Monet’s 16 masterpieces.  

This program will be presented LIVE via our Facebook page. Please register your interest in the Facebook event. Ask questions during the LIVE via the comment section on our Facebook LIVE video as our curators will be on hand to answer your questions in real time.
