An exciting and astonishing exhibition, an aesthetic boxer’s blow to the heart” – London Evening Standard
A staunch believer in the Republican cause, a freethinker and chronicler of everyday life in turbulent 19th century Paris, Honoré Daumier lived during a pivotal time in France’s history. ‘Visions of Paris’ sets out to explore his legacy through 130 works, many of which have never been seen in the UK before, with a concentration on paintings, drawings, watercolours and sculptures.
A fascinating exhibition.
