Lunch & Lecture: 'European Masterpieces' Part 3
'Revolution and Art for the People'

11.00AM Thu 14 Oct 2021
GOMA | GOMA Restaurant, Cinema A | Sold Out

Delve deeper into QAGOMA exhibitions and displays at our monthly Members lecture then catch up with friends over a two-course lunch in the GOMA Restaurant.

Join Sophie Rose, Assistant Curator, International Art and Nina Miall, Curator, International Art, for a conversation about the final chapter of ‘European Masterpieces from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York’. Impelled by a succession of revolts in France that spread across Europe, Realist painters such as Gustave Courbet, Honoré Daumier and Édouard Manet launched a critique upon the artistic establishment, choosing to paint ordinary people rather than the idealised characters favoured by the official French Academy. Amid the newly renovated boulevards of 1870s Paris, a radical mode of painting emerged after Claude Monet exhibited Impression, Sunrise 1872 (Musée Marmottan Monet), and the term ‘Impressionist’ was adopted. This exhibition is organised by The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, in collaboration with the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art and Art Exhibitions Australia.
