30 September 2005 - 30 January 2006. French Impressionists broke new ground with light effects, atmosphere, and transience in the late 19th century. Now, in a new exhibition, the Leopold Museum is showing masterpieces from Paris Muse dOrsay including Manet's "Fifer", van Gogh's "Arlsienne", Monet's "Htel de Roche Noire", Degas' renowned "Dancing Lesson" and other major works. Paintings by Caillebotte ("Floor Scrapers") and Millet ("Angelus") as well as early works by Manet show the development of the "plein air" style from the Naturalist tradition. Canvases by Seurat, Valloton and Czanne convey how this development continued into early modernism, thus making the connection to the Leopold Museum's own collection.
