Impressionism Plus Two
Linda Blair explores the historic context, personalities, theories and techniques of Impressionism, focusing on four of the most revolutionary artists of 19th century France: Impressionists Edouard Manet and Claude Monet, and Post-Impressionists, Vincent van Gogh and Paul Cezanne. The five-part lecture series will conclude with a little-known anecdote relating the American role in rescuing these avant-garde artists from failure and ignominy, and insight into the allure and appeal of Impressionism to 19th century Americans.
