Impressionisms and their museum

Created in 2009, the Musée des Impressionnismes Giverny took over from the American Art Museum founded in 1992 by Daniel J. Terra.

Since then, it has organized major exhibitions on artists such as Pierre Bonnard, Maurice Denis, Gustave Caillebotte and Edgar Degas.

Impressionisms? It is impressionism in the broad sense, in its plural forms, that this museum aims to explore, ideally located in the town where Claude Monet lived from 1883 until his death in 1926.

Since its creation, with the help of the Circle of its Patrons and the Society of its Friends, the Museum of Impressionisms has built up a collection that is constantly enriched through acquisitions, donations and deposits.

From its reopening at the end of March 2023, the museum is programming two major exhibitions. The first one, called "Children of Impressionism", will take place from March 31 to July 2. Dedicated to the representation of the world of childhood at the end of the 19th century, this exhibition will notably present works by Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Mary Cassatt and Berthe Morisot.
