French Pastels - Treasures from the Vault

Published on July 26, 2018

Pastels are only rarely exhibited due to the fragility of the powdery pigment and the light sensitivity of the paper on which it rests. Drawn primarily from the MFA’s holdings, with select loans from a private collection, “French Pastels: Treasures from the Vault” provides an exceptional opportunity to see firsthand nearly 40 seldom-shown masterworks by artists including Cassatt,Degas, Millet, Monet, Renoir and more.

The exhibition is being held form June 30, 2018 - January 6, 2019 at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Avenue of the Arts, 465 Huntington Avenue, Boston, Massachusetts 02115.
