Manet imaginatively recreated a critical battle in the American Civil War, which occurred off the Normandy coast, using newspaper reports. You can see this painting at 'Inventing Impressionism': http://bit.ly/1Irydzd

There's only one month left to see 'Inventing Impressionism'. To mark the occasion, today on Twitter we're sharing pictures of #PaintedDancers, like this beautiful painting by Renoir.

John Constable went to Osmington near Weymouth for his honeymoon in 1816, where he probably got the idea for this painting. 'Weymouth Bay: Bowleaze Cove and Jordon Hill' http://bit.ly/1DSVXWB

If you had the chance, what would you ask Claude Monet?
We’ll be discussing Writing to the Impressionists in a special course on 14 May, looking at the correspondence between the Impressionists (including Monet, who painted this wonderful still life) and Paul Durand-Ruel: http://bit.ly/1DYImNN

Vincent van Gogh painted his chair while working in the company of Gauguin at Arles. Did you know he also painted a companion picture of Gauguin's armchair, shown by night? http://bit.ly/1DYCrbx

Many paintings were originally made to be viewed from above or below. This vibrant painting of 'A Muse (Calliope?)' by Italian artist Cosimo Tura is one example. It would have been displayed high up in a room, hence the low vanishing-point: http://bit.ly/1Iqdo7h

Renoir's 'Girl With a Cat' was one of Paul Durand-Ruel's favorite pictures. Visitors to his apartment were sometimes able to persuade the dealer to sell paintings from his collection. But in this instance Durand-Ruel refused all offers. http://bit.ly/1HTxCY3

Jan Van Goyen died on this day in 1656. He was famous for his naturalistic landscapes in early 17th century Holland. What do you think of 'A Windmill by a River'? It's on display in room 16. http://bit.ly/1K7RvZv
