National Gallery Singapore - Century of Light
Synopsis

Century of Light features two exciting exhibitions on art from the 19th century, a post-Enlightenment era of innovation and change. Together, they demonstrate the range of painting styles and art movements that emerged in Europe during this formative period, which has been and continues to be influential to the development of art in Southeast Asia and around the world.

Between Worlds: Raden Saleh and Juan Luna
City Hall Wing, Level 3, Singtel Special Exhibition Gallery C

Between Worlds features the works of Indonesian artist Raden Saleh (c.1811–1880) and Filipino artist Juan Luna (1857–1899), two leading painters from Southeast Asia who achieved wide acclaim in Europe. This will be the first major survey to bring their works together, drawing from important collections around the world.

It explores how Raden Saleh and Juan Luna developed their work living between two diverse cultures and societies; and how the European experiences of these extraordinary artists have shaped the art history of this region.

Colours of Impressionism: Masterpieces from the Musée d’Orsay
City Hall Wing, Level 3, Singtel Special Exhibition Gallery A & B

Colours of Impressionism tells the story of Impressionism through the colours that painters used at different stages in their careers. From the deep blacks of Manet's Spanish-influenced paintings, to the green and blue landscapes that Cézanne and Monet painted outdoors, to the soft pinks of Renoir's classical female figures, the exhibition traces the importance of colour to the Impressionists' radical reshaping of painting in the 19th century.

The exhibition features over 60 masterpieces from the renowned collection of the Musée d’Orsay, Paris, including key works by Monet, Renoir, Manet, Pissarro and Cézanne.
