The blue hour of Peder Severin Krøyer Musée Marmottan Monet

  • Exhibition

REOPENING ON 19 MAY 2021 - The Musée Marmottan Monet presents for the first time in France a group of major works by the Danish painter Peder Severin Krøyer (1851-1909).

Krøyer was a portraitist, genre painter and landscape artist. All three aspects of his work will be present in the exhibition, which will reveal his features, those of his wife - in the 1890 double intimate portrait in the Skagen Museum - and those of his friends.

The role of light, of pale colour is predominant in his work. Interested as much in naturalism as in impressionism, he knew how to make this "blue hour", the meteorological phenomenon that precedes twilight, vibrate in the eyes of Parisians who were unaware of it.

The exhibition is the fruit of a scientific partnership between the Marmottan Monet Museum and the Skagen Museum (Skagens Kunstmuseer), which has been running for three years.

Opening and closing times

From 19/05 to 26/09/2021 between 10 am and 6 pm. Closed on Monday. Late nights: Tuesday (until October 1st ) and thursday, to 9 pm (last admission: 8.30 pm).


Adult: 12 €.
