Bruce Museum - Tour of Electric Paris Exhibit

Paris had been known as the City of Light long before the widespread use of gaslight and electricity.

Organized thematically into four sections, Nocturnes, Lamplit Interiors, Street Light, In and Out of the Spotlight - Electric Paris explores the ways in which artists responded to older oil and gas lamps and the newer electric lighting that began to supplant them around the turn of the 20th century. Electric Paris features approximately 50 works by such artists as Edgar Degas, Mary Cassatt, Pierre Bonnard, Édouard Vuillard, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Charles Marville, Jean Béraud, James Tissot, Childe Hassam, Charles Courtney Curran, Alfred Maurer, and Maurice Prendergast, among others.

Transportation provided by volunteer drivers.
