The news of National Gallery Singapore’s latest collaboration with Musée d’Orsay was a big deal for me, especially owing to the fact – like my sister likes to joke to me about – that this exhibition basically sums up my degree. Or at least, my favourite style and period in art history, which is 19th century French art.
So you can most probably tell how excited I was to see it, and what made it even better was that I got to see a preview of it before it opened, and I could take all the photos I wanted without the swarms of people that I’m sure the Gallery is seeing right now.
With a popular theme like Impressionism (although what could beat Yayoi Kusama’s polka dotted works in popularity?), I feel like this exhibition is easily appealable to many people, though I have a few misgivings about the way the artworks were grouped by… colour.
