In France, from the 18th century onwards, painters began to paint outdoors and to grasp the effects of light with objectivity. The artist must then carry with him all his material, which is not always easy, and also be fast, because the spectacle of nature is constantly evolving. Next spring, the Musée des Impressionnismes Giverny will offer to retrace the history of outdoor painting through its exhibition called Plein air. From Corot to Monet, which plunged visitors into the heart of the 18th century until 1873, the year before the invention of the term "impressionism". More than 80 works will be presented, from Camille Corot to Joseph Mallord William, Eugène Boudin and Claude Monet, a journey where the work of traveling artists to the first impressionists will be revealed.
