Walking in Paris: Viewing the City and Its Denizens in the 19th Century


On view
May 22, 2012 to Aug 12, 2012

In this installation, the museum invited viewers to visit Paris through a selection of paintings, prints and photographs that evoke the voyeuristic experience of the flâneur, an idle stroller who enjoys the urban environment in all its glory and decadence.

The selection of artists included Pierre Bonnard, August-Louis Lepère, Camille Pissarro, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, and several others.

Curator: Robert G. La France

Sponsored in part by the Illinois Arts Council, a State Agency
