Flower Power

In collaboration with the Kunsthalle München and with the exceptional support of the Musée d’Orsay and the Centre Pompidou, the Musée des impressionnismes Giverny invites you to discover an unprecedented exploration of the power of flowers, from Antiquity to the present day.

Inaugurated in February 2023 in Munich, the exhibition Flowers Forever, became Flower Power in Giverny. Enriched with a section on Impressionism, the exhibition will present great masters such as Bazille, Manet, Caillebotte and Cézanne.

What is the symbolism of the flower over the centuries? Beyond aesthetics and poetry, what messages did the artists seek to convey through the floral motif?

Flower Power offers to broaden our gaze thanks to thematic sections devoted to history and mythology, the relationship between science and art, religions, but also politics and economy.
