Renoir and the New Era
11th December 2021 – 16th May 2021, Ulster Museum
Renoir and the New Era features a series of Impressionist works from The Courtauld’s collection with La Loge (1874) as its centrepiece, on loan to Belfast for the first time. The exhibition looks specifically at the 1874 ‘First Impressionist Exhibition’ that featured La Loge and how the painting itself, and the Impressionist movement, represented the emergence of democracy within culture and a new era of thought around art, politics and representation.
Accompanying works on paper by Berthe Morisot, Édouard Manet and Camille Pissarro raise the subjects of the portrayal of women in Impressionism, new approaches to drawing the figure, and depicting daily life.
Please note this exhibition is currently closed due to Covid-19, a virtual exhibition is available online.
