A new guide for cultural tourism
Impressionism developed in Slovenia, generating a school of significant reputation and increasingly better known. The talent and fame of Slovenian artists such as Ivan GROHAR, Rihard JAKOPIĆ, Matej STERNEN and Matija JAMA have now gone far beyond the borders of this small European state.
In 2013, the exhibition “The Slovenian Impressionists and their times” presented at the Petit Palais in Paris made a strong contribution to discovering and highlighting these artists; Monique LUCENET, in her latest book entitled “The Routes of Impressionisms in Europe” - 2022 Council of Europe Literary Prize - devotes 4 pages to the Slovenian Impressionists...

In September 1883, Pierre-Auguste Renoir stayed for a little over a month in Guernsey. He painted around fifteen paintings as it chosen bay, on the island’s south clifts, Moulin Huet. He was accompanied by friends including the journalist Paul Lhote and, likely, his partner and model Aline Charigot.
Having first explored Jersey, his ultimate goal was the rock of Guernsey “on which Victor Hugo cried out for eighteen years”. Renoir’s voyage marked a pivotal period for his art: “ In around 1883, there was a break in my work. I had gone as far as I could with Impressionism and I had reached the conclusion that I did not know how to paint or draw” he wrote!

Belgian Luminism is an original adaptation of the Impressionist concept of French origin. It exalts the clearest irradiations of light and the search for pictorial effects capable of restoring them...
In 1904 most of the Belgian Impressionists presented themselves under the new banner of the Association "Vie et Lumière" around Emile Claus. The most active luminist focus was then in East Flanders, in the Ghent region as well as in the Lys valley, where Jean Delvin, Léon de Smet and Edmond Verstraeten stood out for the quality and variety of their works.

The Solingen Artists' Colony " Black House" Solingen owes its origin not to enthusiasm for a special landscape or as a retreat into a special, even untouched nature, but rather to the commitment and attraction of intellectuals and free spirits.
First and foremost, the work of a very educated, self-confident and emancipated lady - Erna Heinen-Steinhoff (1898-1969) - who, as a muse of the arts, created, cultivated and
developed a literary salon in the manner of the 19th century in Solingen at the beginning of the 1920s, a meeting place for painters, writers, musicians and intellectuals.
Together with her husband, the business journalist and art-loving lyricist Hanns Heinen (1895-1961), Erna Heinen-Steinhoff developed as a muse into an important patron of the arts.
Over the years, the literary protagonists of the "Black House" were joined by three painters. Erwin Bowien (1899-1972), Bettina Heinen-Ayech (1937-2020) and Amud Uwe Millies (1932-2008).
