Exhibition Catalogue "Impressionism - Pathways to Modernity", presented at Louvre Abu Dhabi (12 october 2022 - 5 feb. 2023).

Featuring pioneering works by Manet, Degas, and Monet, Pissarro, Renoir, and Cézanne, the exhibition brings together more than 150 masterpieces alongside etchings, costumes, film and photography to explore why Impressionism was considered so shocking in the 19th century and how it paved the way for the artistic revolutions that were to come.

Born at a time of profound social, political, and cultural upheaval, Impressionism was more than mere artistic rebellion. It saw some of history's bravest and most visionary painters embrace and extoll new ways of seeing, making art, and living.

They celebrated this thrilling new reality, representing truthful observations of nature and modern life. The result was a fundamentally new and different kind of art, unburdened by artistic and academic convention or tradition, whose radicalism, honesty, and bravery continues to inspire artists to this day.
