Paris Art Studies Lectures Online & On Site Tours

 

2024 marks the 150th anniversary of the first Impressionist exhibition which opened in Paris on the boulevard des Capucines on 15 April 1874.

The Musée d’Orsay is celebrating this anniversary with a major exhibition, “Paris 1874 – Inventing Impressionism”, from 26 March to 14 July 2024.

 

Key Impressionist paintings will also be shown in smaller exhibitions all over France.

Paris Art Studies will be devoting all of its lectures in April to this important anniversary,

including the musée d’Orsay special exhibition which will be the subject of our two final Monday lectures this month.
