French Pastels: Treasures from the Vault

French Pastels: Treasures from the Vault offers a chance to view some 40 late-19th-century masterworks that are rarely exhibited due to their fragility. The high concentration of pure pigment powder that lends pastels their distinctive velvety texture and luminous, blendable colors has a downside: the particles remain loose on the surface, leaving the work vulnerable […]

A City Transformed: Photographs of Paris (1850-1900)

Commissioned by Napoleon III, Baron Haussmann’s ambitious — and then controversial — renovation of Paris replaced a warren of medieval streets with the stately, monument-studded boulevards and parks so beloved today.

Corot: Women

Trained in the Neoclassical tradition yet devoted to the direct observation of nature, Camille Corot helped elevate landscape from its former status as a minor genre and lay the groundwork for Impressionism.
