From City to Country: Nineteenth-Century French Prints

This exhibition celebrates the picturesque city views and pastoral landscapes of Maxime Lalanne and Adolphe Appian, two artists of the French etching revival. In their delicately rendered prints, Lalanne and Appian document historic neighborhoods, witness changes to the urban landscape, and offer nostalgic representations of an idyllic countryside. From City to Country: Nineteenth-Century French Prints will be on display at Local Speed August 7, 2015–January 2, 2016.
