Win tickets to Inventing Impressionism at the National Gallery and a hotel stay for two

You and a friend could enjoy this stunning exhibition as well as an overnight weekend break at a 4 star hotel

By Time Out editors

The National Gallery’s Inventing Impressionism is the UK’s first exhibition devoted to the visionary French art dealer Paul Durand-Ruel of whom Monet said 'Without him, we wouldn't have survived'. So universally popular are the Impressionists today, it’s hard to imagine a time when they weren’t. But in the early 1870s, they struggled to be accepted. Shunned by the art establishment, they were even lambasted as ‘lunatics’ by one critic. One man, however, recognised their worth from the beginning. Paul Durand-Ruel, an entrepreneurial art dealer from Paris, discovered this group of young artists – including Monet, Degas, Manet, Renoir, Pissarro and Sisley – and took a gamble.

Discover the many paintings that make up this vibrant story in art history by entering our competition to win a pair of tickets to Inventing Impressionism. The lucky winner and their friend will enjoy a personal meeting with the exhibition’s Assistant Curator, the exhibition catalogue ‘Inventing Impressionism: Paul Durand-Ruel and the Modern Art Market’ and a National Afternoon Tea. The prize also includes an overnight weekend stay for two at the 4 star Novotel Blackfriars hotel. Finally, the prizewinner and their guest will enjoy a slap-up dinner at the hotel.
