The prints, drawings, and photographs in this small exhibition focus on the themes, styles, and important artists active as printmakers in France during the decades leading up to and following the Paris Commune of 1871. The key image in this installation is Édouard Manet’s powerful 1871 lithograph Civil War (Guerre Civile). It will be accompanied by other works that reveal the formal influences of Impressionism and photography by French artists such as Gustave Courbet (1819–1877), Camille Pissarro (1831–1903), and Félix Bracquemond (1833–1914).
Ongoing every day from June 12, 2013 through November 17, 2013.
