Paris, Fin de Siècle:
Signac, Redon, Toulouse-Lautrec
and their Contemporaries

12 May - 17 September 2017
Guggenheim Museum Bilbao | Bilbao, Spain

Offering an exceptional opportunity to view rarely seen, late 19th-century French avant-garde works from private European collections, Paris Fin de Siècle focuses on the radical innovations of the Neo-Impressionists, Symbolists and Nabis, alongside the revival of printmaking in the 1890s.

The leading exponents of these movements are represented by approximately 125 paintings, pastels, drawings, and prints. These works mirror the political and social upheaval of the period, embracing utopian conceptions of shimmering land and seascapes, introspective, fantastical visions, and stark, incisive portrayals of contemporary life.

Including artists such as Paul Signac, Odilon Redon, Pierre Bonnard, and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, the exhibition maps the divergent aesthetic and philosophical currents of a tumultuous decade, while charting the destabilizing events at the brink of a new century.
