Masterpieces from the “Peindre en Normandie” collection

The Monet exhibition and the Impressionists in Normandy originate from the collaboration between the Asti Museums Foundation and the “Peindre en Normandie” association base in Caen. The synergy between these two institutions brings to Asti over seventy paintings produced between 1822 and 1940 by dozens of artists including Monet, Corot, Coubert, Boudin, Renoir, Bonnard, Gericault, and Daubigny.

Not all the paintings come from the original collection of “Peindre en Normandie”: paintings from other collections have been included to further enrich the exhibition. Special guests will be Claude Monet’s paintings “Camille sur la plage” from the Marmottan Museum in Paris and “Falaise à Pourville, vers 1896” from the Alphonse-Georges-Poulain Museum in Vernon. The painting “Étretat”, also by Monet and “La sœur du peintre et sa fille sur le port de Cherbourg”, by Berthe Morison coming from a private collection.

The exhibition does not want to be a roundup of works for its own sake, but intends to present a particular and well-defined tone: the relationship between the painters of the time and Normandy, the enchantment of artists for Normandy, a territory that becomes a natural microcosm generated from the strength of the land, the wind, the sea and the fog. A natural landscape with its own true and vibrant “physicality”.

Therefore, the exhibition is not only a painting exhibition, although precious and interesting, but wants to be a moment of reflection on different themes: light color, technique, memory, painting en plein aire, time, meteorology, transformations, ecology.

The exhibition is managed by prof. Alain Tapie and is divided into five sections.
