Some favourites from a visit to the Impressionism exhibition in the Art Gallery of South Australia. I found it a very moving experience, with each section moving onwards and culminating in the wondrous ‘Water-Lily Pond, Symphony in Rose’ by Claude Monet. I’ve long felt the French composers of the era, some of whom were also labelled impressionists, such as Debussy and Ravel, to be key influences on my music composition and a couple of phrases from the accompanying texts at the exhibition – ‘expressing a mood’ and ‘fluid harmonies’ – stood out as pointers as to why. Such beauty!
