Label for "Parisian Ecologies: The City Transformed in Nineteenth-Century Prints and Drawings" March 24 - June 25, 2022

This series features a densely populated forest and seemingly quaint Parisian city scenes. Cour du Vieil Hôtel-Dieu depicts the oldest continuously run hospital in the world, which had treated hundreds of thousands of cholera cases over the nineteenth century. Heyman does not depict this suffering but instead one of its causes: narrow, suffocating streets such as Rue St. Julien le Pauvre, where greenery is out of reach.
