Monet-Auburtin.
An Artistic Encounter.

Exhibition 2019 in Giverny France, Museum of Impressionisms

From March 22 to July 14, 2019

 

For its 10th anniversary, the Musée des Impressionnismes Giverny celebrates Claude Monet's work by a confrontation with another Norman artist, Jean-Francis Auburtin (1866-1930).

A generation younger, Auburtin was strongly influenced by the master of Giverny, whose motives he painted relentlessly in Brittany, Normandy and on the French Riviera. But Auburtin was a painter of his time as well, a symbolist and an admirer of Japanese art. Observing how the two artists reacted to the same seascapes in their own style is of great interest.

Auburtin is little known but in his times he was officially recognized. After completing his studies at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, he received many official orders of large murals and became a sought after decorator.  He also painted smaller canvases and works on paper. The exhibition shows some beautiful paintings by Monet and related works by Auburtin.
