Masterpieces from Paris Exhibition - Canberra

Just some of the Impressionist and Post-Impressionist works on exhibition in Canberra at the NGA until April 2010, on loan from the Musee D'Orsay, Paris.
Cezanne, Sisley, Seurat, Van Gogh, Monet, Bonnard, Bernard, Vallotton, Denis to name just a few. To see the artworks with their brushstrokes and canvas details was stunning. Listening to the commentary from passing visitors just as stunning but for all the wrong reasons. I have really come to appreciate my growing knowledge of art history as it made the exhibit so much more accessible and rewarding. If you are in Canberra over the next six months you must visit it. From Australia it travels to Tokyo, Japan and then San Fransisco I think.
