Through some 60 sculptures, photographs, and works on paper by Degas, Manet, Daumier, Vuillard, and others, In the City of Light: Paris, 1850-1920 offers a kaleidoscopic view of the French capital in its role as one of the world’s first modern metropolises. From beggars to bourgeois flâneurs, architectural landmarks to dancers at the Folies Bergère, the multifaceted portrait captures the city’s grit, beauty, and vitality.
