The Dutch in Paris, 1789-1914 exhibition

The Dutch in Paris, 1789-1914 is an exhibition devoted to Dutch artists and their Parisian influences, at the Van Gogh Museum.

All along the 20th century, Paris has inspired countless foreign artists. The Dutch in Paris, 1789-1914 exhibition introduces some of the major names of Dutch art, like George Hendrik Breitner, Kees van Dongen, Piet Mondrian and obviously Vincent Van Gogh. Influenced by the City of Lights and other artists having expressed their art in the capital, such as Pablo Picasso and Claude Monet, they in turn left their mark on French art. Back in their country, Dutch painters imported the Impressionist movement and launched a trend of ballerina portraits and other “snapshots” of modern life. For the first time, all those masterpieces will be exhibited at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. A perfect occasion to admire dozens of works of art that explore Paris with a fresh touch.
