Into the Light: French and British paintings from Impressionism to the early 1920s
Into The Light brings together some of the most significant names working on either side of the Channel including Clausen, Monet, Pissarro, Renoir, Sickert, Sisley, Stanhope Forbes and Whistler.
This exhibition of French and British Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art is something that has never before been undertaken in the south west. Into The Light surveys the production of paintings on both sides of the Channel between the 1880s and 1920s. Complementing the character of the south west, the exhibition explores the themes of coast and countryside.
This outstanding selection of art includes many paintings being shown for the first time in Exeter and was made possible by the generosity of lenders. As well as work from RAMM’s collection, we will also be showing paintings and drawings from nearly twenty of the UK’s major public collections, including the Ashmolean, Barber Institute, British Museum, Courtauld, Fitzwilliam Museum, National Gallery, National Museum Wales, Royal Academy, Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art and Tate.
Into The Light celebrates the re-opening of RAMM and showcases the new temporary exhibition galleries. It was specially curated by Sam Smiles, Emeritus Professor of Art History at the University of Plymouth and Tate Research Fellow 2009 -12. This exhibition underlines RAMM’s ambition and ability to present nationally significant exhibitions to both the local community and visitors. The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue edited by Professor Smiles.
The exhibition will tour to Compton Verney, Warwickshire from 31 March to 10 June 2012
15 December 2011 to 11 March 2012
