Description

The Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum explores the affinities and mutual influences between the Impressionists and photographers in the second half of the 19th century.

The exhibition analyses the close relationship between photography and painting, from the first daguerreotypes and the development of photographic printing on paper. The works of photographers like Le Gray, Cuvelier and Disderi inspired many artists, including Manet, Degas and the young Impressionists, to develop a new way of seeing the world. They also inspired them to develop new techniques, such as the scientific observation of light, the depiction of foreshortening, and the exploration of casual compositions and visual ambiguity.The influence between the disciplines was mutual, as photographers absorbed the Impressionists’ new perspectives and looked for ways to make their photographs less precise and more painterly. The exhibition is organised into eight sections on themes that attracted painters and photographers equally: The Forest, Water, The Countryside, Monuments, The City, Portraiture, The Nude and Movement.
