VIENNA.- The exhibition at The Albertina presents up to 200 drawings, watercolors and pastels by the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists. Active in France during the second half of the nineteenth century and closely associated with avant-garde movements, artists such as Manet, Degas, Renoir, Signac, Pissarro, Seurat, Gauguin, Cézanne and Toulouse-Lautrec created works on paper that may be less well-known than their paintings but which are just as significant. This is the first international exhibition devoted exclusively to drawings by these artists and considerably extends knowledge of Impressionism and Post-Impressionism . On view at The Albertina through13th May.
