Impressionists in London: French artists in exile 1870-1904
Lecture | Yorkshire Museum
Wednesday 22 November 2017 - 18:30 until 20:30
A lecture on the forthcoming exhibition at Tate Britain, Impressionists in London: French artists in exile 1870-1904 by the curator of the exhibition, Caroline Corbeau-Parsons. The exhibition will focus on French artists who sought refuge in London during and after the Franco-Prussian War (1870-71). Some like James Tissot and the sculptor Edouard Lantéri, had a career in Britain, while others, including Claude Monet, only came back to England on later occasions. The exhibition charts the story of these artists and the networks they developed.
This event has been organised by the York & East Yorkshire Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
