The reinstallation of Realism in Gallery 206 provides an opportunity to explore the Museum's holdings from this major artistic movement, which emerged in mid-19th century France. Landscape painting was at the heart of the Realist movement. The painters known as the Barbizon School formed an artistic colony in Barbizon, France, and also traveled extensively around the country representing the diversity of their native landscape.
A NEW VIEW: REALISM
The Museum's reinstallation of Realism was curated by Simon Kelly, curator of modern and contemporary art.
