Join Jo Briggs, Assistant Curator of 18th and 19th Century Art and enjoy an in-depth and behind the scenes tour of our special focus exhibition, Near Paris: The Watercolors of Léon Bonvin  Highly detailed and truely original, Léon Bonvin's watercolors of flowers, landscapes and moonlit scenes represent a distinctive contribution to the realist movement in mid-19th century France. Self-taught, Bonvin’s luminous paintings reflect the humble surroundings accessible to the artist, an innkeeper on the outskirts of Paris.
