IMPRESSIONISTS IN LONDON
FRENCH ARTISTS IN EXILE - 1870-1904
VISIT TO TATE BRITAIN - WEDNESDAY 10TH JANUARY 2018

Wednesday 10 January 2018

This exhibition presents captivating works by Monet, Tissot, Pissaro and their compatriots.

In the 1870's, France was devastated by the Franco-Prussian war and insurrection in Paris, driving artists to seek refuge across the Channel.  Their experiences in London and the friendships that developed not only influenced their own work but also contributed to the British art scene.

This is the first exhibition to map the connections between French and British artists, patrons and art dealers during a traumatic period in French history.  Highlighting their engagement with British culture, traditions, and social life, their art is a fascinating insight into how London was perceived by the visiting French artists and the remarkable works that came from their time here are not be missed.

COST includes tea/coffee on arrival, lecture, buffet lunch and timed tickets to the exhibition
