So 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. Discover the man who recognised their worth from the beginning. Inventing Impressionism opens 4 March. http://bit.ly/1Ac1N8a

Paul Durand-Ruel invested in Pissarro after the artist had lost almost his entire life's work, over 1,000 of his paintings, pillaged in the Franco-Prussian War. 'The Lock at Pontoise', painted when he returned to France from London can be seen in our exhibition 'Inventing Impressionism' which opens this Wednesday. http://bit.ly/1LiiMYh
