A pastel is rarely exhibited due to the fragility of the powdery pigment and the light sensitivity of the paper used to display it.  During the late 19th century, some of the most famous avant-garde artists in France and beyond took up pastels, including  Cassatt, Degas, Manet, Millet, Monet, Pissarro, Redon, and Renoir.   They captured the fleeting moment, the passing effects of light and weather, delicate blossoms that might soon fade in these most exquisite pieces.

Come hear Beth Stein discuss these very special works of art that are part of the current exhibition “French Pastels: Treasures from the Vault” at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
