Prior to recents, this series of reuniting long lost motion pictures from the 19th century with the great paintings of the leadings had been planned. New York and London have already been completed here at AAD, so here is Paris as it was in the era of the Impressionists, first in motion pictures, then in colour by the favorite painters of Paris. As the museum credits would indicate, these images are cherished from around the world.
