An outstanding Impressionist collection. A rare opportunity to witness some unique developments in the history of Impressionist Art. This is not just a simple display of paintings by the leaders of the Impressionist movement, (Manet, Monet, Renoir, Cezanne,Pissaro, Seurat, Signac and Berthe Morisot an early female artist) but curated sensitively to demonstrate the changes that took place with scientific developments in colour. This new facility allowed the artists to experiment and break free of the dominant Realist school and their dark hues. The unique display in the Gallery reflects the changes from the early use of dark colours to an extraordinary breakout into splashes of these new colours.

No words can describe the extraordinary collection. The unique curation extends the richness into a new appreciation of these Masters closely aligned with the developments in colour, courtesy of science and technology.
The Gallery is open late on the first Friday of each Month. I suggest a use of the free guided tours. Please check for a talk by the Co-curator of the Exhibition, Tony Magnusson, who was outstanding for his knowledge and does much to extend ones understanding of this great revolution in art.
If you are visiting from another state and happen to be a member of the State Gallery,
take your membership card and get a discount. A seniors discount is also available.

I am a big fan of Impressionism and I feel lucky to see so many masterpieces from Impressionists. We spent a whole afternoon in the Gallery and lost track of time enjoying the art here.

The current exhibition is well worth a visit or two. The Art Gallery has been repainted to show the works to best advantage and in my opinion is one of the best galleries in Australia. Thank you for bringing these fine paintings to Adelaide, and I am sure many visitors to see them.

The gallery provides a wonderful and unexpected experience with a vast collection of art from many eras but includes some significant pieces that form part of the history of South Australia.
