L’Esprit: Exploring Wit and Beauty in French Prints

August 3 - October 10, 2021

This exhibition is organized by the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts, Kalamazoo, Michigan.
Curated by Nancy Sojka, guest curator.

Celebrate the joys and foibles of French society and culture between 1830 and 1930, when Paris was the world capital of artistic creativity, innovation, and opportunity. The daily life of people “from the city and country, rich and poor, famous and anonymous“ grew to become a most popular subject. The exhibition is organized according to several major themes such as depictions that glorify or ridicule the ever-present French State, landscapes of the monuments and street life found in big towns and cities, bucolic renditions of farm life, the adoration of beautiful women, the love of children, and the fruitful relationship that arose between printmaking and literature.

Over 30 artists from the 18th and 19th century. Artists include: Paul Cezanne, Honore Daumier, Paul Gauguin, Edouard Manet, Camille Pissarro, and Pierre Auguste Renoir.
