Exhibition: The Art of pastel from Degas to Redon

Since September 15th, 2017, the Petit Palais is interested in the art of pastel, through a rich retrospective that presents almost 150 works realized by the greatest artists. From Impressionism to Symbolism, all the artistic movements are unveiled with creations of Berthe Morisot, Paul Gauguin, Auguste Renoir, Edgar Degas, Mary Cassatt, Odilon Redon or even Jacques-Emile Blanche and Victor Prouvé.
