Into the Forest: Landscape as Subject and Studio in 19th-Century France

SEE EVENT DETAILS
at Cantor Arts Center (see times)
This installation of 17 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).
