Between 1874 and 1886, eight Impressionist exhibitions were held in Paris . The Impressionist Era: Works on Paper exhibit features 75 pieces by 33 artists, many of whom participated in the Parisian shows. While their styles, subjects and techniques were diverse, they were united in their willingness to experiment and question traditional aesthetic standards and art world practices. Many of the artists were mentors, friends, competitors, and followers. Some were forerunners of the Impressionist movement, revealing how the movement emerged out of established trends in the mid- 19th century. Others were from the generation that followed, the 1890s, growing out of developments that paved the way for the avant-garde art.
