“Neo-Impressionism in the Colors of the Mediterranean”: The exhibition continues

Until April 7, 2024.

It continues with great success until April 7th International exhibition “Neo-Impressionism in the Colors of the Mediterranean”, organized by the Vassilis & Elizas Goulandris Foundation in Athens. The Foundation collaborates with leading European museums and important private collectors and presents, for the first time in Greece, a comprehensive homage to the Neo-Impressionism movement with a focus on the Mediterranean.

The exhibition is under the patronage of the French Ministry of Culture.

The term “Neo-Impressionism” It was originally proposed by the French art critic Félix Fénéon, who wanted to establish a connection with the Impressionism movement while using the prefix “neo-” to highlight the divisions between the two tendencies. The term prevailed over the term Division (“Division” or “Divisionism”), defended by Signac, as well as over the term “Pointillism”, which gradually appeared in newspapers but was considered inappropriate as an exclusive term by the movement’s artists described the process (however the specific term is still commonly used today).

The exhibition “Neo-Impressionism in the Colors of the Mediterranean” takes place in collaboration with important museums and institutions in Europe such as, among others, Musée d’Orsay, National Gallery of London, Center Pompidou, Musée des Beaux-Arts de Besançon, Musée de l’Annonciade, Musée de Grenoble, Musée national d’archéologie, d’histoire et d’art – Luxembourg and Musée des Arts Décoratifs and European private collectors. The exhibition presents works by Paul Signac, Henri-Edmond Cross, Maximilien Luce, Théo van Rysselberghe, Henri Matisse, Henri Manguin and Louis Valtat, most of whom are coming to Greece for the first time.

Curators The exhibition is attended by Marina Ferretti Bocquillon, honorary scientific director of the Museum of Impressionism in Giverny (Musée des impressionnismes Giverny) and Maria-Koutsomalli Moreau, collection manager of the B&E Goulandris Foundation.

The report is attached detailed list with texts from the two curators and the head of the Signac archive, Charlotte Hellman Cachin.
