Featuring more than 170 works of art and artisanal objects from the renowned collection of the Musée Carnavalet – History of Paris, the exhibition reflects on the period of great social change, urban development and artistic innovation which shaped modern Paris and continues to capture the global imagination.

The oldest municipal museum in Paris, the Musée Carnavalet - History of Paris was founded in 1866 to document the history, built environments and unique character of Paris during a period of rapid modernisation. Located in the protected heritage district, the Marais, the museum is home to over 620,000 works of art and artefacts from the Mesolithic period to the present day.

 The exhibition distils its beauty and energy, from the busy banks of the Seine, bustling marketplaces, grand boulevards, idyllic public gardens and the bohemian Montmartre area, as it was portrayed by some of the most influential artists and artisans of the period.

Across seven themed pathways Paris: Impressions of Life 1880-1925 presents artisan street signs, historic couture, decorative arts, and everyday ephemera alongside paintings by artists including Jean Béraud, the pre-eminent painter of Parisian life in the Belle Époque, Maurice Utrillo and Paul Signac, pioneer of the artistic technique of pointillism, as well as vibrant graphic prints by Toulouse-Lautrec and his contemporaries.

Paris: Impressions of Life 1880–1925 is curated by Valérie Guillaume, Director of the Musee Carnavalet – History of Paris, Anne-Laure Sol, Curator of Paintings and Stained Glass, assisted by Lara Cavallo and Bendigo Art Gallery curator Clare Needham.
