Impressionist PaintingsView Gallery
The Museum’s Impressionist collection includes five works by Claude Monet, four by Edouard Manet, seven by Edgar Degas, and four pastels and two prints by Mary Cassatt. Several were first exhibited in Paris in the famed Impressionist Exhibitions of the 1870s and ’80s.
Also on display are works by pre-Impressionist French painters Gustave Courbet, Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, and Charles-Francois Daubigny.
Louisine and Henry O. Havemeyer, important collectors of Impressionism and the parents of Shelburne Museum founder Electra Havemeyer Webb, once owned most of the pictures now at Shelburne. The collection is shown in six period rooms relocated from Electra and J. Watson Webb’s 1930s New York City apartment at 740 Park Avenue, now in the Electra Havemeyer Webb Memorial Building.
