Impressionism is probably the best-known and best-loved of the fine arts genres. This course continues to use the Great Courses Video Series “From Monet to Van Gogh: A History of Impressionism” as its base. This semester we will explore French art in the late 1870s and early 1880s, including the Third, Fourth and Fifth Impressionist Exhibitions. The changing times and their influences will be explored and we will become better acquainted with the “impressionist” artists, with each lecture primarily highlighting one painter. After the video, discussions will include a review of paintings from the lecture and possibly some surprises! Please check the OLLI newsletters for the specific topics to be addressed at each class.
