Impressionism and the Sea

As part of the Impressionistic Scenes Masterworks performance, the Columbus Symphony and Columbus Museum of Art will collaborate with an afternoon lecture that pairs chamber music performances by Symphony musicians with works from the CMA art collection.

This presentation will focus on the Impressionism and the sea. It has been said that the Impressionist movement, dedicated to open-air views of sparkling sunlight and reflections, owes its origins to the ocean. The painting that gave the movement its name, Monet's Impression: Sunrise, depicts the waters of the Atlantic off the French coast. See how views of the sea by Monet, Manet, and Renoir capture both the ocean itself and the activities of those whose lives unfolded in or around the maritime environment.

This event will take place at the CMA.

Tickets are $5 for CMA members/ $20 for non-members which includes admission.
