Welcome !

Impressionism, an art movement famed across the world, is inextricably linked with the areas that witnessed its birth and blossoming – Normandy, Paris, and the Paris Region. Great artists such as Monet, Renoir, Degas, Caillebotte, Morisot, Pissarro and their heirs, including Van Gogh, came to set up their easels here, out of doors, along the Seine, or on the Normandy coast… Come and experience the sensations that inspired them!
