frischer wind - Impressionismus im Norden

In the organizer's words:

Impressionism blew like a fresh breeze from France across the entire continent from the 1860s onwards - and stirred up the art world of northern Europe. In collaboration with the Dutch Museum Singer Laren and the Museum Kunst der Westküste Alkersum/Föhr, the Landesmuseum Hannover is showing how the characteristics of this important art movement were reflected in the works of Danish, Dutch and German artists and how they were translated into their own national styles.

Around 85 top-class paintings and oil studies depict atmospheric moods and fleeting snapshots of original themes, a fresh color scheme and a new painting technique of the Nordic Impressionists - among them important representatives such as Anna Ancher, Isaac Israels, Johan Barthold Jongkind and Peder Severin Krøyer. In Germany, the "triumvirate of German Impressionism", Max Liebermann, Max Slevogt and Lovis Corinth, represented the style with outstanding works. In the seven thematic areas of light, beach, country, winter, city, garden and travel , the exhibition highlights the differences and similarities between the artists.
