Ardent Cities

Art, Work, Revolt. 1870–1914

07.11 — 11.22


By paying attention to the depiction of scenes of work in towns between 1870 and 1914, the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Caen is broadening the perspectives of impressionist art, which also took an interest in the society of work and was sensitive to the realities of its times. The three sections (landscape, people, social history) emphasise the attention paid by open-air painters to the economic, political and social transformations of their era, from memories of the events of the Paris Commune to the eve of the First World War.
