Impressionists in London: French Artists in Exile 1870-1904

Saturday 14 April at 11:00

St Anne’s Church, Kew Green

Exclusive talk by Tate Britain curator Caroline Corbeau-Parsons who will discuss her exhibition on French artists who sought refuge in 1870s London, when France was ravaged by the Franco-Prussian war and Paris Commune, and consider how these artists, as outsiders, transformed the way in which London was represented.  Caroline Corbeau-Parsons holds a PhD on Symbolism from King’s College London.  She undertook research for the National Maritime Museum, mostly on 19th-century portraiture, and worked at Watts Gallery before becoming Senior Editor of the Philip de László catalogue raisonné.  In 2010 she was co-curator of the exhibition Philip de László: Portraits at the National Portrait Gallery, and co-authored his biography (Yale University Press). She joined Tate in 2012, working on acquisitions, displays and exhibitions including Pre-Raphaelites: Victorian Avant-Garde, Sculpture Victorious, and Artist and Empire.
