Petit Palais dedicates an exhibition on "Impressionists in London" from June 21 to October 14, 2018. Artists in Exile, 1870-1904 ", this exhibition recalls that many French artists have found refuge in the United Kingdom. The causes of the exile were various during the nineteenth century: the Franco-German war of 1870, then the fall of the Second Empire in 1870, and Paris Commune. Several French artists have emigrated to an economically prosperous country, but also to a city where the art market have success. French art brought a breath of modernity to British art thanks to the works of French artists such as Pissaro, Monet, Sisley, Tissot, Daubigny and Derain. The exhibition of paintings are accompanied by sound testimonials.
