Impressionism at the NGI

Claude Monet, 'Argenteuil Basin with a Single Sailboat', 1874. NGI.852.

For teachers and students...

This new resource presents fifteen artworks from the Gallery’s collection- Impressionist, Neo-Impressionist, and Post-Impressionist- and explores the social and art historical context in which they were created, as well as discussing their subject matter and formal qualities.

This project came about when BNP Paribas Foundation and BNP Paribas Ireland approached the National Gallery of Ireland to find an appropriate way to mark the French bank’s 40th anniversary in Ireland. The Gallery responded to this welcome invitation by devising this resource based on the Impressionist, Neo-Impressionist and Post-Impressionist works in the National Gallery of Ireland’s collection, aimed at teachers, students and everyone interested in Impressionism. Our thanks go to the BNP Paribas Foundation and BNP Paribas Ireland for inviting the Gallery to mark its 40th anniversary in Ireland.
