AMAZING: From Paris: A Taste for Impressionism!

I went to the Royal Academy exhibition 'From Paris: A Taste for Impressionism' over the weekend. The exhibition provides a unique opportunity to see major works from the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Massachusetts and includes some wonderful works by Manet, Monet, Pissarro, Degas, Sisley and Morisot, as well as a wonderful group of more than twenty paintings by Renoir.

The collection also includes important works by pre-Impressionist artists such as Corot, Théodore Rousseau and J-F. Millet, as well as examples of highly polished ‘academic’ paintings by Gérôme, Alma-Tadema and Bouguereau. The 70 works in the exhibition are simply extraordinary and if you get a chance to go take it!
