About the Tour

Around the turn of the 20th century, the Parisian neighborhood of Montmartre was famous for its bohemian culture, revolutionary politics, and raucous cafés and cabarets. Learn about the remarkable group of artists who made Montmartre their home throughout the belle epoque, including Degas, Picasso, Renoir, Van Gogh, and Toulouse-Lautrec. Using high-definition “deep zoom” technology, docents will lead you through the collection galleries and provide astonishingly close-up views of the canvases!

Registrants will be emailed a link for the talk on the Tuesday prior.
