Barberini permanently shows over 100 works by great impressionists

From September 5, the Barberini Museum in Potsdam will become a place of Impressionism - permanently. Visitors will then be able to see more than 100 works by painters such as Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Henri-Edmond Cross and Alfred Sisley as a permanent exhibition, as the Barberini announced on August 25, 2020.

The show presents works by more than 20 Impressionists and Post-Impressionists - all from the private collection of the founder and SAP co-founder Hasso Plattner. The more than 100 paintings will be shown alongside changing exhibitions. 34 Monet paintings by Plattner have already been shown in the "Monet.Orte" exhibition. According to the museum, the exhibition attracted around 110,000 visitors - despite a compulsory break of almost two months due to corona. With the works on display, Potsdam would become "one of the world's most important centers of impressionist landscape painting," it was said. Outside of Paris, nowhere else in Europe are more Monet works on display in one place.
