> DESCRIPTION

In this installation, the museum invites viewers to visit Paris through a selection of paintings, prints and photographs that evoke the voyeuristic experience of the flâneur, an idle stroller who enjoys the urban environment in all its glory and decadence. The selection of artists include Pierre Bonnard, August-Louis Lepère, Camille Pissarro, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, and several others.
