What To Expect

The General Staff Building of the State Hermitage Museum houses one of the best exhibitions devoted to Impressionism and Post-Impressionism.

On the excursion, you will completely immerse yourself in the world of art and follow the path that painting has traveled since the end of the 19th century, from impressionism to cubism. You will learn how new directions of painting were born, what difficulties the founding artists of Impressionism faced - Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Camille Pissarro and Auguste Renoir - and, of course, examine their paintings in detail.

The excursion includes more than 50 of the brightest and most famous paintings from the exposition of the General Staff. While examining them, you will learn to distinguish impressionism from post-impressionism, find out what meaning the artists laid in their works, and get to know their fate more closely. Walking from hall to hall, you will find answers to the questions: Why are there so many still lifes with apples in the hall of Paul Cézanne? How to understand the riot of colors in Kandinsky's work? Who are the Neo-Impressionists? And much more!

We guarantee vivid impressions, new knowledge that you can brag to your friends, and a huge number of photos on film!
