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.
