Impressionism: Capturing Life
February 15, 2016

An exquisite new exhibition curated by the Holburne Museum’s
Director, Jennifer Scott, which brings together 28 masterpieces from
British public collections to celebrate the Impressionists’
observations of humanity.
The show centres on figurative paintings by some of the artists that
exhibited at the first Impressionist exhibition of 1874, including
Edgar Degas, Berthe Morisot, Camille Pissarro, Pierre-Auguste Renoir
and Alfred Sisley. Significant loans from, among others, Tate, The
National Gallery, London and The Scottish National Gallery feature
alongside the Holburne’s works on paper by the important but often
overlooked British Impressionist Sir George Clausen, founder-member of
the New English Art Club.
