The Last Impressionists

An Epoch of Intimacy

This exhibition invites you to discover artists from the New Society of Painters and Sculptors, the most famous artistic fraternity of the Belle Époque and interwar periods. Often referred to as 'The Last Impressionists', its members shared a taste for intimacy, domestic scenes and a love of landscape. From 1895 to 1939 they met with public and critical acclaim and appeared in all major international exhibitions.

 

With 70 paintings and thirty drawings & lithographs, this touring exhibition is the first in France to accord this movement the recognition it deserves.
