Since being founded in 2009, the vocation of the Museum of Impressionisms in Giverny is to present thematic or monographic exhibitions linked to impressionism in the broadest sense and its variations. It is thus attached to showing its influence on modern and contemporary art. At the same time, it has been developing a collection which, centred on impressionism, and postimpressionism and their extensions, benefits from the generosity of large-scale primary sponsors.
The collection currently contains 211 pieces, without forgetting its major archives. Reflections of a collection provides visitors with a glimpse of the museum’s collection, which is constantly being enriched. From the impressionism of Caillebotte to the postimpressionism of Bonnard, from the painting of Joan Mitchell to the delicate poetry of Hiramatsu Reiji, the museum thus sets about bearing witness to the influence of impressionism up to the most contemporary creations.
