Exhibition of Independents
In April 15, 1874, a group of artists, rejected by the juries of the Salon, brought their works together in the former studio of the photographer Nadar at 35 boulevard des Capucines, Paris. Although some critics appreciate the "new painting", most subject the artists to ridicule. The work of the "Impressionists" will eventually lead to what is now recognized as Modern Art.

A vitual exhibition of  The First Impressionist Exhibition, 1874   is put together  by Mark Harden. This is excellent.
