This exhibit includes the 1872 work,
Impression, Sunrise that coined the name of the popular art movement.

This masterpiece together with the some forty impressionist and related paintings from the Marmottan, the Tate, and Australian and New Zealand collections is coming to the NGA.

The works reveal the formative characteristics of Impressionism-depiction of light, purer colour and capturing the momentary view- by a new generation of artists who abandoned their studios for the world outside.

This is an exciting opportunity to see a masterful exhibition of works
that became emblematic of a cultural movement.
