Thank you for joining us for this unique online event in celebration of the NGV’s 2021 Melbourne Winter Masterpieces exhibition French Impressionism from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

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.



We are delighted to exclusively share with you, online access to the remarkable publication French Impressionism from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

This substantial volume offers insights into the conditions leading to the emergence of French Impressionism in the 1870s, the radical modes of experimentation that characterise the movement, and the many connections between its leading artists, creating an informative study of this enduringly fascinating art movement. Artworks by leading exponents of French Impressionism are reproduced in high detail and are accompanied by a suite of new texts by curators at both art museums.
