About the Tour
Each month, our Spotlight Tours focus on a different artist or theme, allowing for a deeper dive into specific areas of the collection.
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. For writers, musicians, and artists, Montmartre became a cauldron of creative experimentation and discovery. Learn about the remarkable group of artists who made Montmartre their home throughout the belle epoque, including Edgar Degas, Pablo Picasso, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Vincent van Gogh, and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.
Before and after the tour, you’re invited to explore the collection and other exhibitions.
