The Petit Palais, City of Paris Fine Art Museum, is hosting the National Gallery of Slovenia's exhibition "Slovene impressionists and their time 1890–1920" from 18 April to 13 July 2013.
This presentation of Slovene fine art to the French and international audience is unprecedented both in the number of works and in the delineation of the time period. The exhibited objects are a selection from the exceptionally successful exhibition "Slovene Impressionists and their Time 1890–1920" in 2008 (to read more click here).
200 exhibits, the pinnacles of Slovene fine art of the period, are displayed: paintings, sculptures, drawings, caricatures, book designs and photographs. Film and architecture are presented through video projections.
At the same time, the exhibition is exploring the broader historical context of Ljubljana's formation as the national centre of Slovenes. In addition to the four Impressionists, Rihard Jakopič, Ivan Grohar, Matija Jama and Matej Sternen, the exhibition includes their contemporaries, especially two Realists, Jurij Šubic and Ivana Kobilca. The exhibition is upgraded by a version of "Before the Hunt" by Jurij Šubic from a museum in Niort, western France. In conjunction with the exhibition, a catalogue of 160 pages and with 70 colour reproductions has been released.
