'The Parisian Comedy' at the Petit Palais
Sean Rose is taking us to the Petit Palais in Paris, to see a retrospective of the French artist Jean-Louis Forain called “The Parisian Comedy”. As a contemporary of Manet and Degas, Forain was considered the most incisive of the French Impressionists. He was famous for his caricatures and his sarcastic portrayal of society.
