Impressionists in London, French Artists in Exile (1870-1904)
Lecture | Linnean Society
Thursday 30 November 2017 - 11:00 until 12:00
Caroline Corbeau-Parsons is the curator of Tate Britain’s major winter exhibition Impressionists in London, French Artists in Exile (1870-1904). Works by Monet, Tissot, Pissarro, Derain, Sisley and their compatriots will be featured.
In the 1870s France was devastated by the Franco-Prussian war and the insurrection in Paris which drove artists to seek refuge across the Channel. Their experiences in London and the friendships that developed not only influenced their own work but contributed to the British art scene.
This is the first exhibition to map the connections between French and British artists. Caroline will give a fascinating insight into how the visiting French artists perceived London and British culture. She will discuss some of the remarkable works that came from their time here.
