Gauguin, Bonnard, Denis: Prophets of the Avant-garde

The Hermitage highlights three major figures from the world of late 19th and early 20th-century art: Gauguin, Bonnard and Denis.

After the Impressionistic period, the three French artists each set off on new artistic journeys, with Gauguin influencing the direction of the younger Bonnard and Denis, who went on to lead Les Nabis.

This art movement was characterised by colour, feeling, symbolism and imagination, and although it borrowed the Impressionist's attempts to capture the fleeting suggestion of natural light, its paintings were predominantly flat and composed using bold, unmixed colours.

The exhibition showcases the work of the Nabis artists together with supplementary pieces by their predecssors, peers and successors.  

Daily 10.00-17.00 Wed 10.00-19.00
