    What the London press are saying about

    Impression: Painting Quickly in France, 1860-1890

    "Quick--it's the show of the year…so rich in interest that I could start all over again and not repeat myself. I learned something new on every page of Brettell's beautifully written catalogue."

    Richard Dorment, The Daily Telegraph, November 1, 2000


    "*****...By concentrating on the physical, painterly nature of Impressionism, this one reminds us that art really was revolutionary once….a provocative new look at the beginnings of modern art. It deserves to pull a few of the crowd from the Tate Modern."

    Jonathon Jones, The Guardian, November 20, 2000


    "*****...It looks like the beating heart of Impressionism, an account of a revolution….This is the most sublime exhibition…it looks to me very much like the best Impressionist exhibition I have ever seen."

    Philip Hensher, The Mail on Sunday, November 5, 2000


    "...Stuffed full with some of the most beautiful paintings imaginable…It does none of us harm to be reminded that things may be popular because they are good."

    William Packer, The Financial Times, November 4-5, 2000


    "...Drastically new approach to the understanding of Impressionism...highly important show."

    Souren Melikian, International Herald Tribune, November 4-5, 2000
