"B LONDON.- This summer the Royal Academy of Arts presents from paris: A Taste for Impressionism Paintings from The Clark. The exhibition showcases 70 major works, many of which have never been on public display in the UK before. Masterpieces by Manet, Monet, Pissarro, Degas, Sisley and Morisot, as well as an exceptional group of more than twenty paintings by Renoir, from the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Massachusetts, are shown. The exhibition illustrates the Clark Art Institute’s holdings of French 19th-century art, with particular emphasis upon Impressionism. The exhibition also embraces important works by pre-Impressionist artists such as Corot, Théodore Rousseau and J-F.Millet, as well as examples of highly polished ‘academic’ paintings by Gérôme and Bouguereau."
