And a bit from my beloved Madrid, there is a expo at the Thyssen museum of Impressionists artists starting today. “The Impressionists and Open Air Paintings from Corot to  Van Gogh”, the early painters from John Constable or Camille Corot,to  post-impressionnists such as Vincent Van Gogh, passing by  Claude Monet, Paul Cézanne or Pierre-Auguste Renoir,. The exposition will have  113 works that will be shown by themes of different sceneries. Some of the work on display will be that of  Claude Monet,  “Marée basse devant Varengeville”  1882, “Etretat, mer agitée” from  1883. Others will be  “Sous-bois” of Gustave Courbet (1856), “Le clos normand” of Cézanne (1885-86) or “Peupliers au bord de l’Epte” of Monet (1891). webpage http://www.museothyssen.org/microsites/exposiciones/2013/airelibre/index_en.html
