The Impressionism and Post-Impressionism in France Gallery is devoted to avant-garde artists working between about 1870 and 1900. This gallery, which opened to the public following renovation on June 4, 2014, provides an in-depth look at renowned masters including Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul Cézanne, and Vincent van Gogh. The gallery’s display features a wide range of landscape paintings—from Monet’s Fisherman’s Cottage on the Cliffs at Varengeville (1882) and Grain Stack, Snow Effect (1891) to Renoir’s The Seine at Chatou (1881) and Van Gogh’s Ravine (1889)—and such selections from the Museum’s renowned collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist portraiture as The Duchessa di Montejasi with Her Daughters, Elena and Camilla (about 1876) by Edgar Degas and Lullaby: Madame Augustine Roulin Rocking a Cradle (La Berceuse) by Van Gogh (1889). Monet’s grand La Japonaise (Camille Monet in Japanese Costume) (1876) holds a place of honor here following its recent conservation. The gallery also features major works in marble, bronze, and plaster by Auguste Rodin, Degas, and Renoir displayed in sleek new cases against fabric-covered walls and a refinished floor.
