Curator Rebecca Rice explores the transatlantic traffic of art and artists in the late 19th century, the age of impressionism.

Paris was a magnet for American artists at the time. Most went to study at the formal academies, but many found themselves seduced by the ‘new painting’.

This event is part of a series showcasing our new exhibition – Colour & Light: Impressionism from France & America.
