Running from September 15, 2017 to April 8, 2017, The Art of Pastel, from Degas to Redon is the exhibition you should not miss!
The exhibition allows you to discover the main pieces of the pastel collection of the Petit Palais including works by Berthe Morisot, Auguste Renoir, Paul Gauguin, Mary Cassatt, Edgar Degas, Emile-René Ménard and a very outstanding set of works by Odilon Redon and James Tissot.
This very fragile works are presented for the first time for some of them. They will be exceptionally displayed for 6 months before returning to the reserve. This event is the opportunity to initiate visitors to the difficulties in conserving works on paper that are particularly sensitive to lights and can therefore not remain on permanent display.
The technique of pastel is endlessly seductive due to the material, the colors at the crossroads between drawing and painting. The majority of the pieces on display date from 1850 to 1914 and illustrate the resurgence of pastel in the second half of the 19th century.
