Focus on pastel

The exhibition “The Art of Pastel, from Degas to Redon” gives a overview of pastel use by artists from Impressionism to Symbolism movements such as Berthe Morisot, Auguste Renoir, Paul Gauguin, Mary Cassatt, Edgar Degas, Emile-René Ménard, Odilon Redon and James Tissot. Some 130 works are on display, most of them dating from 1850 to 1914 and they illustrate the resurgence of pastel in the second half of the 19th century. They come from the museum’s collection but as these works are very fragile and sensitive to light, some of them are presented for the first time.
