Organised in conjunction with the current show at Tate Britain, Impressionists in London: French Artists in Exile (1870–1904), this two-day conference Crossing the Channel: French Refugee Artists in London (1870–1904) aims to uncover and stimulate new research on Anglo-French networks between the Franco-Prussian war and the Entente Cordiale in 1904, as well as the influence of French teaching methods on British education.
