Impressionism in the Age of Industry: Monet, Pissarro and More

Some of the greatest artists of all time responded with passion and creativity as their beloved Paris was transformed by the modern age.

Now, a major new exhibition developed by the Art Gallery of Ontario is the first to explore themes of industry and labour in Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art.

Impressionism in the Age of Industry: Monet, Pissarro and more brings masterpieces from around the world to the AGO, including great paintings, sculpture, drawings, prints, photographs and film from the period.

The exhibition also presents works from the AGO Collection in a new light, including Camille Pissarro’s Pont Boieldieu in Rouen, Damp WeatherClaude Monet’s Charing Cross Bridge, FogEdgar Degas’ Woman at Her Bath, and James Tissot’s The Shop Girl.

"Bringing these works together will offer a new perspective on Impressionism, which is more often associated with leisure activities and sunny landscapes,” says Caroline Shields, the AGO’s Assistant Curator, European Art. “These artists were equally fascinated by the modernity of industry. Their art celebrates the changes occurring around them and the people who made it all happen.”
