For the first time in Europe, the Kunsthalle Munich presents masterpieces by Canadian Impressionists from the late 19th to the early 20th century. Influenced by Impressionism in France, they were especially interested in capturing the fleeting atmosphere of the moment. They painted scenes from everyday life in Canada and landscapes that reproduced the incomparable light and nature of the North. Some artists ultimately emancipated themselves from European Impressionism, creating an own distinctive style for their young nation.
Organized by the National Gallery of Canada in collaboration with the Kunsthalle München.
Accompanying the exhibition is a comprehensive catalogue co-published by the National Gallery of Canada and Arnoldsche Art Publishers. With over 300 colour illustrations, it includes contributions by Katerina Atanassova, Tobi Bruce, Anna Hudson, Laurier Lacroix, Lauren Lerner, Tracey Lock, Gerta Moray, Sandra Paikowsky, and a foreword by Adam Gopnik.
