The French Impressionists: Revolution in Art & Society
Tuesday, May 21, 2019 | 1:00pm-2:30pmThe French Impressionists, a mid-19th century, art movement revolutionized the way art was depicted. The movement was inspired by a variety of factors, including anti-establishment sentiment, foreign/Asian influences, and a desire to paint everyday life. Their intent was to modernize the art world and move away from traditional academic subjects of history and mythology that had been the focus of art for centuries. The works of Manet, Renoir, Monet, Degas, and others, are still considered the best known and best-loved paintings in the art world.
