DALLAS, TX.- The Dallas Museum of Art presents a
landmark exhibition exploring the influential and profound relationship between
photographers and painters who lived and worked along the Normandy
in France during the mid-19th century. The Lens
of Impressionism: Photography and Painting Along the Normandy Coast, 1850-1874
reveals how the convergence of social, technological and commercial forces
within the region affected artistic production and dramatically transformed the
course of photography, impressionism and modern painting. The exhibition
will feature some 100 works, including vintage prints, paintings, pastels and
watercolors, by artists and photographers including Gustave Courbet, Edgar
Degas, Gustave Le Gray, and Claude Monet.
