French guided tour – The Burrell Collection : Painting Reality – “A short history of French Art, from Le Nain to Cézanne”

Date: 28 May 2023, 11:00am - 12:30pm GMT+1 Amsterdam

Join us on 28th of May to enjoy a French guided tour at the Burrell Collection with Clémence, Art Historian :

In the 17th-century, the Brothers Le Nain were among the first French artists to paint images of poverty. Two centuries later, Paul Cézanne revolutionized art by developing an entirely new technique based on the way he wanted to see the world. During these two centuries, artists developed incredible skills to represent ‘what is real’, from delicate still-lives, to social commentaries and outdoor landscapes. Featuring works by artists such as Chardin, Courbet, Boudin or Sisley, this tour will focus on presenting on evolution of ‘reality’ in French art from the 17th to the 19th century.

Places are limited.

Meeting place will be outside of the Burrell Collection’s main entrance (glass doors).
