This temporary exhibition celebrates Sir William Burrell's magnificent collection of 19th Century French paintings and pastels. It includes many of the most famous names of the Impressionist period- Degas, Boudin, Fantin-Latour, Manet, Rodin, Cezanne, Pissarro, Renoir, Sisley and Gauguin. It also features a selection of works by the Post- Impressionists Le Sidaner, Simon and Vuillard.
The exhibition includes more than 40 of Burrell's most renowned works, displayed together for the first time and includes 20 works that have rarely or never been on public display before.
We ask, what is it that makes these works Impressionist? Where did Burrell buy them and how much did they cost?
