The Impressionist Revolution: Forty Years of French Art at the Dixon   

April 24 – July 17, 2016   

The Dixon’s much lauded permanent collection returns to view in the galleries in a special exhibition celebrating forty years of French art at the Dixon. The Impressionist Revolution: Forty Years of French Art at the Dixon tells the remarkable story of Impressionism through the Dixon’s permanent collection. The Impressionist Revolution chronicles the influences and factors that led to the historic Impressionist Exhibition of 1874. Organized by the Anonymous Society of Painters, Sculptors, Printmakers, etc., a group that included Edgar Degas, Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, and others represented in the Dixon collection, the exhibition marked the beginning of the Impressionist movement that subsequently affected the course of Western art. The works on view in The Impressionist Revolution demonstrate in how the movement was a crucible for avant-garde styles that followed.
