Félix Vallotton, Scène de rue (Street Scene), 1895

The fin de siècle was a time of political upheaval and cultural transformation whose many facets inspired a spectrum of artistic movements. By the late 1880s, a generation of artists had emerged that included the Neo-Impressionists, Symbolists, and Nabis. Their subject matter remained largely that of their still-active Impressionist antecedents—landscapes, the modern city, leisure—though they also painted introspective scenes and fantastical visions. Focusing on these movements, The Avant-Gardes of Fin-de-Siècle Paris: Signac, Bonnard, Redon, and Their Contemporaries includes approximately 100 paintings, drawings, and prints, and explores certain artists in depth: Paul Signac, Maximilien Luce, Maurice Denis, Pierre Bonnard, Félix Vallotton, and Odilon Redon.

The exhibition is organized by Vivien Greene, Curator, 19th- and Early 20th-Century Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York.
