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. This exciting exhibition offers a broad panorama of the second half of the 19th century; the renewal period of pastel. This is the only occasion to discover this art at the crossroads between drawing and painting, only a few subway stations from the Green Hotels Paris, the Eiffel Trocadéro and the Gavarni, near from the most beautiful avenue of the world, the Champs-Elysées.
