The exhibition presents over seventy works by Georges Seurat, Paul Signac, Emile Bernard, Charles Angrand, and Vincent van Gogh from the intensely creative period between 1882 and 1890, with a variety of dreamy, picturesque, and industrial landscapes achieved by intense experimentation and use of different painting and drawing techniques, bright and intense colors.
