Chester Collections announce French Naturalist Painters

Chester Collections present French Naturalist Painters: 1890-1950, an exhibition on view Tuesday 29 January untill Saturday 16 February 2013.

Born at the beginning of the Impressionist movement, the eleven exhibited naturalist painters distinguish themselves from their contemporaries by their total commitment to their fertile dialogue with Nature.

The exhibited works, about fifty stemming from private collections, take their time – at the rate of the seasons – to review the intimate link which exists between art and nature.

This pictorial journey on the roads of France also crosses into Switzerland with views of Lake Geneva and the Vaudois Riviera, of which Gaston Balande and Victor-Ferdinand Bourgeois were particularly enamoured.
