Throughout their careers the Impressionists produced decorations. Of various nature and status, these works were intended to create a harmonious effect within domestic spaces. Whether commissions from clients and patrons, or formal experiments executed on a variety of supports, these artworks range from large-scale mural paintings to small objects, fans and dinner plates. All demonstrate the Impressionists’ ongoing interest in decoration and their remarkable creativity in this field. Exploring a hitherto little-known aspect of Impressionism, this exhibition brings together for the first time a selection of decorative works created by these artists: from early, experimental paintings and objects, to the largest and most ambitious of all Impressionist decorations - Monet’s Waterlilies, which the artist called his “grandes décorations”, installed at the Orangerie almost a hundred years ago and visible on its main floor.
