Exhibition on Impressionist painting

"Revolution in Paint"

The North Carolina Museum of Art has mounted a major international
loan exhibition, Monet in Normandy (October 15, 2006-January 14,
2007), featuring 50 paintings by the French impressionist master
Claude Monet. In conjunction with this exhibition, the Museum's
conservation and curatorial departments have developed a focus
exhibition called Revolution in Paint (September 17, 2006-February
11, 2007).

Revolution is based on a simple premise: A radical change in
artist's pigments during the 19th century enabled a revolution in
painting. The exhibition explores the innovations of the
impressionists-with special emphasis on their choice of pigments-as
well as those of the dominant academic painters against which the
impressionist rebelled.

To supplement Revolution, we've also made a web exhibition,


The web exhibition includes an exhibition guide, which is available
free of charge as a PDF download


The download contains an extended discussion of the information
found in the web exhibition as well as an exhibition check list,
bibliography, and acknowledgements.

We invite you to take a look at the web site and exhibition guide.
We hope you will find it interesting and will let us know what you
think of it.
