Paris at the time of the Impressionists is a beautiful exhibition to discover until July 30, 2011 at the Hotel de Ville in Paris.
Organized with the exceptional support of the Musée d’Orsay, which has transferred some 60 works at the Salle Saint-Jean in the Town Hall, the Mairie de Paris pays tribute to Edouard Manet: One hundred thirty years earlier, in 1879, Manet was refused permission to decorate a room in the newly rebuilt Town Hall…
Between 1848 and 1914, the new Paris was the focus of artistic interests.
The Impressionists Edouard Manet, Edgar Degas, Claude Monet, Auguste Renoir, Gustave Caillebotte, Camille Pissarro, Paul Gauguin, Vincent Van Gogh, Edouard Vuillard… passionate about the modernity of the city, were inspired by a multitude of scenes from the Parisian life.
At the same time, many other painters such as Jean Beraud, Giuseppe De Nittis, Giovanni Boldini, or Devambez Andre Theophile-Alexandre Steinlen, have also explored the city in every corner.
Paintings, pastels and drawings, some sixty works of Monet, Vuillard, Degas, Caillebotte, Béraud… many of which have never been presented to the public, illustrate the new identity of Paris under Napoleon III. Many architectural documents and models complete the collection.
The hall Saint-Jean of the Hôtel de Ville has allowed the setting up of monumental works monumental works that reflect a modern and bustling Paris!
At the beginning of the visit, each child can receive a game-booklet to be completed throughout the visit, and then he can take away at home. The works intended for the young public are marked with a small logo.
