“Impressions of Light: The French Landscape from Corot to Monet” tells the story of nineteenth-century landscape through 150 masterworks drawn from the celebrated collections of the Museum of Fine Arts. Featuring not only paintings but also pastels, watercolors, drawings, prints, and photographs, the exhibition is a rich and varied chronicle of one of the greatest art movements of all time—rightly called the School of Nature.

Several artists—including Corot, Millet, Pissarro, Monet, Gauguin, and Degas—are presented in depth, revealing their lifelong fascination with landscape. As Monet said in the year of his death, “The only merit I have is to have painted directly from nature with the aim of conveying my impressions in front of the most fugitive effects.” “Impressions of Light” gives Museum visitors a chance to savor those effects again and again.
