Colloquium: “Between Fontainebleau and Giverny: Territories of Modern Landscape Painting”

This two-day colloquium features a panel of international speakers who explore the development of modern landscape between 1830 and 1890 and reconsider the dialogue between American and French artistic traditions. Speakers also examine the factors that shaped plein-air painting in France and the United States of the period by looking at tourism and the emergence of the phenomenon of the artist colony. The colloquium is held in conjunction with two exhibitions: The Forest of Fontainebleau: A Life-Sized Studio, From Corot to Picasso at the Musée d’Orsay and Impressionist Giverny: A Colony of Artists, 1885–1915 at the Musée d’Art Américain Giverny. This event is organized by the Musée d’Orsay and the Terra Foundation for American Art
