Immerse yourself in the life of the world’s most famous impressionists and their masterpieces Gazing upon the some of the most important artworks of 19th Century Europe, you would be forgiven for thinking the artists lived a charmed and tranquil existence. You could not be more wrong. In fact, the world’s most celebrated artists of impressionism were rebels who were forced to draw deep on courage and fortitude to be recognised by their peers and collectors.
In the early 1800’s, France’s art scene was dominated by the Académie des Beaux-Arts, an association that set the strict standards for work to be accepted in the ‘Salon’, the Académie’s flagship exhibition and biggest commercial stage for aspiring artists at the time. The Académie would only accept neoclassical style and only canonic Renaissance principles.
However, a group of artists whose artworks were inspired by landscape and scenes of everyday life disagreed with the idea of Académie des Beaux-Arts. Instead, they insisted on presenting their view of the world. Of the Impressionist Period, the most famous are Eduard Manet, Edgar Degas, Auguste Renoir, George Seurat, Henri Rousseau, Paul Cezanne, Henri De Toulouse-Lautrec, Paul Gauguin, Vincent Van Gogh, and Claude Monet.
Opening to the public on Friday 8 January in the Museum Of Digital Art on the second floor of River City Bangkok, the works of these ten titans of impressionism will be shown in the dynamic immersion format.
The multimedia format is something visitors to MODA will be familiar with. The exhibition combines panels that tell the story of the artists and the period, recreations of 19th century Paris street life and café culture, reproductions of each artist’s most famous works, and interconnected immersion galleries that combine projection of artworks and emotive music. We suggest you allocate 90 minutes to allow for time to read the panels, study the brushstrokes of these ten famous artists of the impressionist period, and take selfies.
