40 highlights of French Impressionist painting and drawing in the Fitzwilliam Museum


The collection of works by French Impressionist painters in the Fitzwilliam Museum – some hundred and more paintings, drawings, prints and sculptures – is one of the finest in the UK. These web pages present some of the highlights of the collection, as well as three magnificent works by Cézanne and Seurat's large-scale study for 'A Sunday Afternoon on the Grande Jatte', on long-term loan to the Museum from the Provost and Fellows of King's College, Cambridge, to whom they were bequeathed by the economist, John Maynard Keynes.

Explore these works and their related resources (catalogue records, education sheets) through this virtual exhibition.
