Impressions of Normandy

Normandy is as closely linked with the impressionist movement as Provence is with Cezanne and Van Gogh. This summer, the region will host Impressionist Normandy, a festival of over 300 events to celebrate the great masters, ImpressionistNormany.

Giverny, At the gateway to Normandy, just an hours' drive outside Paris, is the idyllic village where Claude Monet made his home and immortalised it in his waterlily paintings. Hosted by the The Musée des Impressionnismes, the Impressionism on the Seine is the one exhibition nobody should miss, ImpressionistmuseumGiverny.

The blockbuster show is undoubtedly A City for Impressionism in Rouen, whose splendid architecture and imposing position on the banks of the Seine take centre stage, interpreted by the likes of Turner, Corot, Gauguin and Pissarro, Rouenmuseum.
