Paris 1874. Inventing impressionism

150 years ago, on 15 April 1874, a group of rebellious artists “hungry for independence”, including Monet, Renoir, Degas, Morisot, Pissarro, Sisley and Cézanne, broke away from the established rules and organised their own exhibition outside the official channels. Impressionism was born. A century and a half later, the Musée d’Orsay revisits this key episode in the history of art, considered to be the kick-off to the avant-gardes, by presenting some 130 exceptional works.

Musée d’Orsay, from 26 March to 14 July 2024
