EXHIBITION INFORMATION
The Saint Louis Art Museum and Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art are co-organizing Impressionist France: Visions of Nation from Le Gray to Monet, a groundbreaking exhibition that explores resonances between landscape and national identity as reflected in paintings and photographs made between 1850 and 1880.

The exhibition will focus on the whole of France to explore the theme of landscape as a reflection/construction of national identity. The works will lead visitors on a journey around the varied and spectacular scenery of the French landscape. Featured artists include Monet, Renoir, Manet, Degas, Cézanne and Morisot, along with photographers Le Gray, Baldus, and Marville

The exhibition is curated by Simon Kelly, curator of modern and contemporary art at the Saint Louis Art Museum, and April M. Watson, associate curator of photographs at the Nelson-Atkins.
