From the repository: visions of France

This series of exhibitions gives viewers the opportunity to learn more about museum exhibits, many of which are sensitive to light and rarely visible. As a rule, only five percent of museum collections are under consideration at any given time. The remaining ninety-five percent - mostly photographs, prints, and drawings - are stored in dark, climate-controlled vaults to protect them from fading.

At the exhibition "From the repository: visions of France"Presents engravings of the French capital and countryside of the late XIX and early XX centuries. Most of the medieval city was demolished to build typical Parisian buildings and boulevards, loved by tourists then and today. In addition, the development of industry and transport systems has turned the French capital into a truly modern international city. Artists of that period treated these changes in different ways, depicting both the positive and negative sides of the city and its inhabitants.

In this installation, engravings, drawings and photographs of artists such as Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Camille Pissarro, James Tissot and others are presented.
