Impressionism: Sensation & Inspiration, Highlights from the Hermitage is sure to... well, impress! The current exhibition at the Hermitage Amsterdam features world famous paintings by some of the greatest Impressionist painters.

The exhibit features works by Monet, Pissarro, Renoir, and Sisley, among others, from the vast collection at the State Hermitage Museum of St. Petersburg, Russia. What sets this exhibition apart from others of its kind is that the Impressionist works are placed side-by-side by predecessors, contemporaries, and successors, complementary and competing movements, giving the visitor a true sense of the tempestuous art scene in France from about 1850 to 1900.

E-tickets to the Heritage Museum Amsterdam are now available via Amsterdam City Tours. Ticket holders need only print their ticket, which can be scanned at the entrance - no waiting in line.

For Impressionist artists, the order of the day was colourful depictions of everyday, bourgeois life, painted outdoors for the sheer joy of painting - a fleeting impression of everyday life. The sensational quality of these works made them a source of ridicule and mockery. But their experimentation opened the doors to new concepts of beauty and reality, ushering in a new era in the art world.
