Masters of French Landscape Paintings from The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, Moscow

As encapsulated in the title, the exhibition consists of landscapes by French artists from the Pushkin Museum in Moscow. The works span a period of almost 300 years, from the 17th to the 20th century. The curators do a nice job of explaining the progression from landscapes as backdrops for paintings of gods and saints to more  of an admiration of nature itself and scenes of everyday life. There is a  geographic movement of subject matter as well: from Paris to its outskirts to central and southern France.
