April 9 - July 9

Frédéric Bazille (1841-1870) arrived in Paris in 1862 to study art at the academic teaching studio, where he met artists Monet, Renoir and Sisley.  Yet this foursome were more interested in the modernist tendencies of avant-garde art, and they abandoned the studio in favor of direct observation of nature.

With this year’s jury headed…
