Paris, Fin de Siècle

Guggenheim Bilbao

NOW CLOSED

Signac, Redon, Toulouse–Lautrec, and their contemporaries

Featuring approximately 100 paintings, drawings, prints, and works on paper, this exhibition analyses the Parisian art scene, focusing on the most important French avant-garde artists of the late 19th century. The Parisian fin de siècle was a time of political upheaval and intense cultural transformation. Mirroring the many facets of an anxious, unsettled era, this period saw the emergence of a broad spectrum of new artistic movements. Despite the diversity of styles, their subject matter remained largely that of their still-active Impressionist predecessors: landscapes, the modern city, and leisure-time activities, although introspective scenes and fantastical visions were now added to the repertoire. Find out more about the ‘Paris, fin de siècle’ exhibition from Guggenheim Bilbao’s website.
