1871 in history and art

16 h 00 - 17 h 30

1871, “année terrible” (dreadful year) as Victor Hugo said, is a turning point in the history of France and Europe. Rather eclipsed by the two world wars, the period is nonetheless founding in history and in art.
This is one of the worse years in French history with the loss of two Eastern provinces, a country ravaged by war, a civil war and many major buildings destroyed in Paris.
In the aftermath starts a new era, with the Republic as a definite regime, and artists getting different styles.
