18 March-25 July. The advent of plein-air painting coupled with tourism in the 19th century made Normandy an attractive destination for artists as well as their wealthy clientele.
The region offered diverse landscapes, including plentiful beaches, as well as a rich architectural heritage. Over the course of the 19th century Normandy gained fame through the ground-breaking paintings of artists from Corot and Delacroix to Impressionists such as Monet, Renoir, Pissarro, Degas and Morisot.
The Musée Jacquemart-André displays around 40 Impressionist works depicting the Normandy region.
