On Sunday 20 April, I was fortunate enough to visit the latest exhibition at the South Australian Art Gallery – Colours of Impressionism – Masterpieces from the Musée D’Orsay.
Unfortunately, I never quite made it to Giverny to see Monet’s Garden, it had always been a dream of mine to see his famous Water Lily creation.
The exhibition consisted of artists such as Monet, Renoir, Manet, Morisot, Pissarro and Cézanne as well as many, many more.
It was a rainy Sunday and I was quickly taken back to the streets of Paris, where artists breathe creativity like air. For this occasion I decided to dress the part. I recently purchased this shirt/jumper from Forever New which doubles in practicality and wearability – transitioning from work to casual to dressy effortlessly. I donned this with a black winters’ cap, black boots, my burgundy backpack (again for practicality), completed with my winter staple – my black cape.
I felt at home, wandering around the Art Gallery, getting lost in the works of the most famous artists in history. It was quite captivating, the sheer detail and simplicity, of each painting yet each had depth that delved deeper with every glance.
I left quite inspired, and dressed like an artiste I was ready to get back in the studio to create! It also cemented the fact my next trip to Paris would entail a trip to where Monet created my favourite masterpiece.
The exhibition is on until 29 July 2019 – if you haven’t already, I suggest taking some time out and seeing it before it disappears back to France. It’s the perfect Sunday setting, especially if it’s raining outside – what could be better than admiring artwork and grabbing a coffee!
