A major exhibition focuses on the birth of Impressionism in 1874 at the Musée d'Orsay in Paris

With the exhibition Paris 1874. Inventing Impressionism, the Musée d'Orsay in Paris celebrates the anniversary of the birth of Impressionism. This movement originated on 15 April 1874, with the first Impressionist exhibition organized by painters who would later become famous such as Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Edgar Degas, Berthe Morisot, Camille Pissarro, Alfred Sisley, and Paul Cézanne. The show at the Musée d'Orsay brings together some 130 works and offers a new perspective on this key date in the history of painting. It highlights the richness of artistic creation at the time, and the radical modernity of Impressionist art in its infancy.
