From the dark alleys at the dawn of the Impressionist era to the world of color and light of the early 20th century, the city of Paris was a continual source of inspiration for the artists and photographers who adopted it as a subject. Originally presented in conjunction with the exhibition Birth of Impressionism: Masterpieces from the Musée d'Orsay, this presentation features prints, drawings, photographs, paintings, and illustrated books from the permanent collection and several distinguished private collections.
