n this selection of thirty images from the extensive holdings of the Clark, you will find examples of the traditional grand portraiture of Jacques-Louis David; the romantic bravura of Theodore Gericault; idealized descriptions of country living by Barbizon artists Jean-Francois Millet and Camille Corot; the social satire of Honore Daumier; brilliant and deceptively casual “snapshots” of everyday subjects by Edgar Degas; a voyeuristic look at an “exotic” culture by Jean-Leon Gerome; the cool academic representation of the ideal human form exemplified by William Bouguereau; experiments in new subjects and painting techniques developed by Impressionists such as Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Claude Monet, and Camille Pissarro; the radical approach to color and pattern of post-Impressionist Paul Gauguin; and more. These different artistic visions demonstrate the dramatic breadth of style and subject produced by nineteenth-century French artists.
