Prints Abound: Paris in the 1890s

The National Gallery of Art offers this site to complement their exhibition of the same name, which is on view at the gallery until February 25, 2001. At the site, users can learn more about the exhibition, which features the work of numerous Parisian painters of the late nineteenth century, such as Pierre Bonnard, Edouard Vuillard, and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. A brief introductory essay describes the contents of the exhibition and explains why Paris in the 1890s witnessed an explosion in printmaking; several thumbnail images accompany the essay and can be enlarged for closer inspection. Also at the site is a link to an in-depth study of one of the featured artists, Edouard Vuillard. The study of Vuillard is by far the most informative portion of the site and is recommended for those wishing to know more about the artist and his works. Users interested in visiting the exhibition in person will also find helpful links here; in addition, the exhibition catalog can be purchased through the site.
