Bassins de Lumière – at the submarine base in Bordeaux
6 pm: Visit to the digital exhibition “Monet, Renoir, and Chagall: Journeys around the Mediterranean”
The “Welcome for Commandeurs” Programme began at the end of Wednesday afternoon, by a visit to the submarine base in Bordeaux, with the Bassins de Lumière exhibition: “Monet, Renoir, and Chagall: Journeys around the Mediterranean”. It presents visitors with an itinerary that spans the period between Impressionism and modernism. This new digital exhibition highlights the link between artistic creativity and the Mediterranean shores, as the principal centres of the modernist movement.
The exhibition immerses visitors in the masterpieces of twenty artists: Renoir, Monet, Pissarro, Signac, Derain, Vlaminck, Dufy, and Chagall, amongst others. In the 1880s, the Mediterranean attracted many artists: abandoning Paris and the northern regions, they flocked to the southern shores, between Collioure and Saint-Tropez.
