COLOURS OF IMPRESSIONISM
MASTERPIECES FROM THE MUSÉE D'ORSAY
29 March-29 July 2018
Exclusive to Adelaide
More than 65 Impressionist masterpieces from the renowned collection of the Musée d’Orsay in Paris feature in a major exhibition at the Art Gallery of South Australia.
Colours of Impressionism: Masterpieces from the Musée d’Orsay charts the revolution of colour that lies at the very heart of Impressionism and includes master works by Monet, Renoir, Manet, Morisot, Pissarro and Cézanne, among many others.
From the dark tones of Manet's Spanish-influenced paintings, to the rich green and blue hues of the French countryside as painted by Cézanne, Monet and Pissarro, to the rosy pigments of Renoir's and Morisot's female figures, the exhibition traces the development of colour in the Impressionists' radical reshaping of painting in the nineteenth century.
The exhibition will be staged in one of Australia’s few nineteenth-century gallery spaces. A fitting backdrop for Colours of Impressionism, the Elder Wing recalls the light-filled interior of the former metro station that now houses the Musée d’Orsay on Paris’ Left Bank.
In partnership with Art Exhibitions Australia, this exhibition has been curated by Marine Kisiel and Paul Perrin of the Musée d’Orsay for the Art Gallery of South Australia.
Organised By Musẻe d’Orsay, Art Exhibitions Australia, Art Gallery of South Australia

A recent Customer Satisfaction Survey of people who have been cardholders for 5 years told us about their card usage. They mostly used their card at arts and entertainment events, closely followed by leisure, and finally sporting, many attending all three.
‘the card has given me the opportunity to partake of activities without the card I wouldn't be able to experience’
Respondents found the card very useful in helping with costs of attending events, being able to attend many more activities and thus enriching their lives.
‘experience activities I wouldn't be able to because of the cost’
‘ I can go out more as I don't need to pay the admission prices for staff’
‘very affordable to take K...., out on outings which let us go out as a family more often as it's affordable. We are very grateful’
‘now able to have a more socially active life without having to pay for a companion. Once I would have stayed at home, but now that I don't have the cost of two people I can enjoy and be involved in a much more mainstream lifestyle. That's what social inclusion is all about’
‘thank you so much for the Companion Card which my sister was able to use in her former supported accommodation. Since her transfer to an Aged Care Nursing home, the family are just getting used to the Card again. It is a wonderful service to a South Australian with a disability. Thankyou’.
