The transformation of Paris during the 19th century into a city of tree-lined boulevards and public parks both redesigned the capital and inspired the era's great Impressionist artists. This exhibition includes masterworks by artists such as Bonnard, Cassatt, Cezanne, Corot, Daumier, Van Gogh, Manet, Matisse, Monet and Seurat, who painted parks and gardens as part of contemporary life. The author provides new insights into these works and that specificaly creative period in France's history.
