Paris at the time of the Impressionists
Monday, June 6, 2011
It is very difficult to paint in a city with so much to see. Paris breathes art around every corner this spring.
The exhibition at Hotel de Ville takes us on a trip to the turn of the nineteenth century's brushes by bringing together some work from the Museum D'Orsay.
It's easy to forget that the sun shines outside, contemplating the icy atmosphere of this masterpiece depicted by Caillebotte:
Vue de toits (effets de neige) - Gustave Caillebottealmost hear the noise of the train ...
Gare Saint Lazare - Claude Monet
or witness the fatigue and loneliness through Lautrec's masterful lines
Seule - Toulouse Lautrec
As we are not allowed to take pictures, I've picked these ones from the web.
Paris au temps des Impressionistes ends July 30th.
