Edouard Manet: Impressions of the sea
AMSTERDAM  •  Van Gogh Museum  •  Ongoing
This show is the first to explore the marine paintings of Edouard Manet and his contemporaries, including such Impressionists as Claude Monet, Auguste Renoir and Berthe Morisot, who were deeply influenced by Manet's seascapes. When Manet first began painting seascapes in the 1860s, the tradition of marine painting in France was governed by well-established conventions that had become stale and tired. Manet's beautiful and challenging views of the sea created new interest in this subject among the younger generation of painters.

The exhibition includes approximately one hundred objects--paintings, watercolors, and drawings--from sixty public and private collections in the United States and abroad.
