Renoir and the New Era: Impressionist works from The Courtauld

Temporarily closed in line with public health guidelines

Ulster Museum, Belfast

Online exhibition

An exhibition at Ulster Museum, Belfast featuring a series of works by celebrated Impressionists in The Courtauld Gallery’s collection, alongside works from Ulster Museum’s collection.

Taking Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s La Loge (1874) from as its centrepiece, Renoir and the New Era explores the Impressionists in the late 1900s, through refocusing attention on their position as agitators and anarchists outside of the established art system. Though they have become household names and are cemented within mainstream art history, it is easy to forget that their style of painting was revolutionary and their decision to group together and exhibit in 1874 an act of defiance against the art establishment, the state and what was even considered ‘art’.

Other Impressionist works in the exhibition include works of art on paper by Édouard Manet, Camille Pissarro and Berthe Morisot, alongside accompanying artwork from our collection.

Part of our Courtauld National Partners project.
