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 from the mid-1880s through the 1890s, including the Last Impressionist Exhibition. The impressionists as a group were breaking up, and variant art styles arose. The south of France beckoned. After the video, discussions will include a review of paintings from the lecture and some surprises! Please check the OLLI newsletters for the specific topics to be addressed at each class.
