"Charles Meryon and Jean-François Millet: Etchings of Urban and rural 19th-Century France"
2000-02-05 until 2000-04-23
Carnegie Museum of Art
Pittsburgh, PA, USA United States of America

Charles Meryon and Jean-François Millet, French printmakers of the mid-nineteenth century, both made etchings inspired by the urban-industrial revolution. Meryon focused on the buildings and bridges in the old sections of Paris, Millet on the lives of the peasants he observed near the rural hamlet of Barbizon about forty miles away. Though their etchings present different views-Meryons of urban Paris and Millets of the countryside-each of them displays nostalgia for a passing way of life.

This exhibition was organized by the Georgia Museum of Art, University of Georgia, Athens. Its presentation in Pittsburgh is made possible by the Fellows Fund of Carnegie Museum of Art. Support for the museums exhibition program is provided by grants from The Heinz Endowments and the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts.
