Paris Episode 09 Impressionist Paris

A very Parisian art movement

Can there be a city and an art movement more intertwined than Paris and impressionism? Home to many of the movement’s best-known artists, Paris itself was the subject of quite a few of their paintings, whether lovely views of the city like Pissarro’s Boulevard Montmartre on a Wintry Afternoon or canvases capturing Parisians at leisure, such as Renoir’s Bal du Moulin de la Galette. This tour of impressionist Paris visits three key sites: the Musée Marmottan, the Orangerie and the Musée d’Orsay.
