Overall visit

The technique of pastel infinitely seductive by its material and its colors, allows a great speed of execution and translates a great stylistic variety. From the simple colored sketch to the great finished works, pastel is at the crossroads of drawing and painting. The vast majority of the exhibits dated between 1850 and 1914 illustrate the revival of pastel during the second half of the nineteenth century.

Art of Pastels from Degas to Redon
@ Petit Palais, Paris, France
14 Nov, 2017

"l'art du pastel" Allez y! cette exposition est d'une fraîcheur incroyable,tellement reposante et gai! Le pastel est une matière souple et fragile qui met en valeur la légèreté, la souplesse des matières. Des peintres moins connus tels que Riesener, Charles Léandre, Emile Guillaume Adam , James Tissot côtoient des maîtres tels que Gaugin, Renoir, Berthe Morisot,, Mary Cassat, Degas..... c'est sublime!
