Bazille, Frédéric - National Gallery of Art Washington

Frédéric Bazille and the Birth of Impressionism
Despite his contributions to the birth of impressionism, 

remains relatively unknown. A thematic presentation (09.04.2017 - 09.07.2017) of 75 works—including paintings by contemporaries such as Claude Monet and Auguste Renoir - will bring to light Bazille’s place as a central figure in the movement. Several examples from the Gallery’s collection, which houses the largest group of Bazille’s works outside of France, will be featured in the first major American exhibition on the artist in almost 25 years. Paintings by his predecessors, Gustave Courbet and Théodore Rousseau, compared with those of Bazille, explore the sources and influences on his limited but visionary oeuvre.
