Monet - Auburtin. An artistic meeting - Catalogue exhibition - French
Celebrated during his lifetime for his work as a decorator, Jean Francis Auburtin (1866-1930) also proved to be a great landscape painter. An admirer of Claude Monet (1840-1926), he set out in the footsteps of his eldest son and set up his easel on the steep banks of the Mediterranean coast, Brittany and Normandy. Where Monet seeks to capture atmospheric and luminous modulations, Auburtin prefers the layering of rocks and a solid construction of the landscape. Between impressionism, synthesis and Japanism, his work aspires more to reveal the state of the world at its beginning and to fix the durability of the elements.
On the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the Musée des Impressionnismes Giverny, this exhibition and its catalogue, which brings together 116 paintings and drawings from 23 French and foreign museums and numerous private collections, highlight Auburtin's unique perspective on the sites immortalized by Monet.
