The Dutch artist Johan Bartold Jongkind (1819-1891) was a key figure in French art in the second half of the 19th century. His influence on Monet and Boudin was essential. Paul Signac considered him the father of Impressionism. The exhibition presents a major selection of his paintings, watercolors and etchings.
