French Impressionism Art Cruise
Coinciding with the 150th anniversary of the Impressionist art movement, follow in the footsteps of the celebrated French Impressionists on our exclusive, private expert-led cruise on the Seine River from Paris to Normandy.
On this leisurely river journey, gain an in-depth insight into the lives and work of the French masters, including Monet, Cezanne, Pissarro, Van Gogh and Gauguin, as you glide through the landscapes and cities that inspired them to produce their enduring works.
In Rouen, Normandy’s capital city, visit the cathedral that so inspired Claude Monet, and enjoy a comprehensive visit to the city’s Museum of Fine Arts with its superb collection of Impressionist masterpieces.
Visit the little town of Auvers-sur-Oise, an inspiration to many of the Impressionist painters and final resting place of Vincent van Gogh. In Giverny, see the home of Monet and stroll through the beautiful gardens that inspired several of his most recognisable works.
On the Normandy coast, amble around Honfleur, with its picturesque old harbour lined with 17th century townhouses, and admire the white cliffs surrounding the village of Étretat, once popular with artists and authors.
This tour is part of the World Art Tours program organised by the Art Gallery Society of NSW in partnership with Renaissance Tours.
