MFAH art opening: Charles Marville: Photographer of Paris

Museum of Fine Arts, Houston

Charles Marville: Photographer of Paris is the first major exhibition in the United States devoted to the 19th-century French artist Charles Marville. The exhibition explores the beauty, variety and historical poignancy of his art through nearly 100 photographs that span his entire career.

At the heart of the show are compelling views of Paris both before and after many of its historic neighborhoods were razed to make way for broad boulevards, monumental buildings and manicured parks. The accompanying publication is the first scholarly catalogue about Marville and presents recently discovered, groundbreaking scholarship on his art and life.

Organized by the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., Charles Marville: Photographer of Paris will be at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, through Sept. 14.
