The Avant-garde of fin-de-siècle Paris


Signac, Bonnard, Redon and their contemporaries exhibit at the Peggy Guggenheim of Venice till January 6th, 2014.


The exhibition includes approximately 100 paintings, drawings and prints focusing on the avant-gardes of the late nineteenth century.

The fin de siècle in Paris was a time of political upheaval and cultural transformation. Mirroring the many facets of an anxious, unsettled era, this period saw a spectrum of artistic movements. By the late 1880s, a generation of artists had emerged that included Neo-Impressionists, the Nabis and Symbolists.

Their subject matter remained largely that of their still-active Impressionist antecedents, although these were joined by introspective scenes and fantastical visions. Concentrating on the activities of these movements, the exhibition explores certain artists in depth: Paul Signac, Maximilien Luce, Maurice Denis, Pierre Bonnard, Félix Vallotton and Odilon Redon.

A unique exhibition that will offer a rare opportunity to view a cohesive arc of primarily French works from this time period.
