The Forty- three portraits of painters of the studio Charles Gleyre is an art work you can see at Le Petit Palais in Paris. Claude Monet, Frederic Bazille, Alfred Sisley and Auguste Renoir, they all came to study the art of the nude and anatomy at the Gleyre studio. A group of young painters bubbling of imagination and in need of change, they will begin the early Impressionism leaving the workshop and guidance of this academic art professor. They will form “Les Intransigeants” (The Hardliners) who will fight against the stubbornness of the academic elite and the gallery du Salon until the beginning of independent exhibitions after 1868.
