We are well aware of the magic of their paintings, but not everyone knows that the Impressionists also left us an extraordinary repertoire of graphic works: a parallel story that will be staged at the Royal Academy of Arts in next autumn's major exhibition. Approximately 70 works on paper - drawings, pastels, watercolors, tempera, gouaches - chosen to tell the revolutionary art between Impressionism and post-Impressionism, in a whirlwind of experiments that will later pave the way for the radical innovations of Abstract Expressionism. Among the most versed in the art of drawing we find Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, present in the exhibition with his picturesque circus scenes, and Edgar Degas, who will delight us with the enchanting dancers and with the famous pastel After the Bath. Woman Drying Herself. And then Van Gogh, Seurat, Redon and even Monet, ready to surprise us again with landscapes flooded with light.
