Why is distance necessary to clearly observe an artwork?

The B&E Goulandris Foundation draws inspiration from the temporary exhibition "Neo-Impressionism in the colours of the Mediterranean", which is on display until April 7, 2024, and invites children aged 9 to 12 to discover the work of the artists Paul Signac and Théo van Rysselberghe.

Light and shadows are all around us! They affect our mood, our feelings and most importantly they determine the way we perceive the world around us.

In the creative workshop "Playing with Light", children learn how the power of light gave rise to a new way of representing the world - to be able to clearly observe it, distance is essential! Children first visit the temporary exhibition and then experiment with small grains of paint. As they dip them in water, colours spill out like light onto the canvas creating unique works of art.
