Into the Forest: Landscape as Subject and Studio in 19th-Century France
This installation of prints, drawings, and photographs explores how French artists depicted the landscape in the modern age and approached making art “en plein air” (in the open air). The phenomenon of making art outdoors took shape in the early decades of the 19th century with the experimental Barbizon School of painters and fully flourished under the Impressionists. Exhibition highlights include photographs by painter James Tissot (1836–1902), a rare cliché-verre—a drawing reproduced using a photographic process—by Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot (1796–1875), and prints by Camille Pissarro (1831–1903).
Ongoing every day from February 3, 2016 through July 4, 2016.
11:00 am – 5:00 pm
Open Wed-Mon 11am - 5pm, Thursdays until 8pm; admission is free. CLOSED TUESDAY.
