Impressions of Paris: Lautrec, Degas, Daumier examines the major contribution to French art made by three key figures: Honoré Daumier, Edgar Degas and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. A generation apart, each was a consummate draughtsman whose innovative compositions and embrace of modern subject matter captured the spirit of Paris.
Featuring over 150 prints, posters, drawings and monotypes drawn from the collection of the National Gallery of Australia, Impressions of Paris considers the significant role of each artist in the development of nineteenth-century art in France—their influence and their originality.
