Impressionism and Spanish Art

The new exhibit in the Museum of Russian Impressionism is comprised of 57 picturesque paintings, sculptures, and graphics from fourteen museums in Spain, as well as private collections, and supplemented by two paintings from the Pushkin Museum in Moscow.

For the first time of this scale in Russia will there be an exhibit of Spanish art from the 19th-20th centuries. The exhibit will show works by 18 Spanish artists who worked side by side with French impressionists, and took part in the first exhibits showing the new trends of European art in the 1880s. The exhibit will present works by Joaquin Sorolla, Ramon Casas, Darío de Regoyos, Marian Pidelaserra, Ignasi Mallol, Santiago Rusiñol, Ricard Canals, Ignacio Zuloaga, Joaquim Mira, and Pere Ysern.

Impressionism is undoubtedly the most popular and beloved style period of the second half of the 19th century. Born on French soil, Impressionism influenced art all around the world. But, perhaps the greatest influence it had was on Spanish artists. They preferred a bright, colorful palette, so that they could share with everyone the beauty of southern nature - the beautiful shade of sweeping trees, the white speckled reflection of the sun, and flowing waters. Spanish Impressionism is influenced by classical styles. One feels the link to traditional art reminiscent of 17th century Velasquez or 18th century Goya.

The exhibit is made possible by the support of the Embassy of Spain.
