Paris at the Turn of the Century

Exhibition Website

Nov 7 2017 - Apr 15 2018

Whether depicting Paris's broad avenues or dazzling nightlife, painters, printmakers, and photographers were drawn to capturing everyday life in the city in the second half of the 19th century. 

Paris at the Turn of the Century features works on paper from the 1880s through the early 1900s, drawn exclusively from the DMA’s collection, that celebrate the French capital’s beauty and dynamism, as well as its seedier and less glamorous aspects. The artists featured in the exhibition are Eugène Béjot, Pierre Bonnard, Félix Hilaire Buhot, Edgar Degas, Jean Louis Forain, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Théophile Alexandre Steinlen, Félix Vallotton, and Jacques Villon.
