17.11.2018 - 17.02.2019

In the 1880s, impressionism developed into a new kind of painting that applied luminous colors sideby-side with short brushstrokes. Henri-Edmond Cross (1856–1910) broke reality down into individual bits of chromatic information. He discovered the Côte d’Azur for painting. In collaboration with the Musée des impressionnismes Giverny, the Museum Barberini presents the first retrospective in Germany of one of neo-impressionism’s most important figures.
