The Storie dell’Impressionismo - I grandi protagonisti da Monet a Renoir, da Van Gogh a Gauguin exhibition, until April 17, in the Museo di Santa Caterina in Treviso is curated by Marco Goldin. This vast exhibition tells the story of Impressionism in 140 works. The exhibition starts with three paintings: Tiziano, Rubens and Rembrandt, highlighting what precedes, and also prepares the way for the reaction to this new school of ​​painting – Impressionism. The exhibition, is divided into six sections, which allow the visitor to follow the path of masterpieces that have marked one of the greatest revolutions in the history of all time.

Storie dell’Impressionismo
I grandi protagonisti da Monet a Renoir, da Van Gogh a Gauguin
The exhibition marks the 20th anniversary of the career of art historian and curator Marco Goldin’s activity. Unfortunately, as with all of the ambitious curators’ exhibitions, this beautiful show has no text, captions or information in English and is aimed at an Italian audience. I am surprised that with all the cost involved in producing such a big exhibition, that the City of Treviso and the sponsors do not aspire also, to a wider international audience.
