      Description

      noun (m)

      segons el GDLC:

      m ART Acte d'inauguració d'una exposició d'art consistent en la reunió de l'artista o els artistes que hi exposen amb els invitats (antigament hom aplicava en aquest moment un vernís protector a l'obra pictòrica).

      A complete philistine who was amazed to learn this Catalan word and its origins found a similar word 'vernissage' which it would appear we use in English:

      OALD:
      vernissage
      an occasion when a few invited people can look at paintings before they go on show to the public

      A question to all you art buffs, do people actually talk about going to a 'vernissage' in English or would we perhaps use 'private showing' instead / as well?

        Gill Martin added a comment - I would use "a private view" for this. http://www.kiad.ac.uk/europrojects/artxchange/files/private_view.html
