Explore the rich connections between landscape and national identity during France's transformational period of 1850 to 1880
Thursday, April 24–Saturday, April 26, 2014
Advance registration required
During these three transformational decades, painters and photographers traveled around France, exploring the exceptionally rich and varied range of history and geography in the nation. These years saw the Golden Age of early photography, the culminating production of the Barbizon School, and the high point of early Impressionism. Over the course of the three-day public symposium, attendees will enjoy more than 10 programs, including lectures and panel discussions, as well as ample opportunity to explore the exhibition.
