Join Curatorial Fellow Jean Stern as he discusses the basics of French Impressionism and its development in the United States. Impressionism developed in France in the late 1860s and early 1870s in reaction to the strict, orthodox standards set by the art establishment which excluded the official participation of younger, more expressive artists. Inspired by the work of Claude Monet (1840-1926), an entire generation of painters revolutionized art in France and throughout the world with their novel approach to color use and subject matter.
By showing numerous images, Mr. Stern will compare Impressionism with the work of academic artists. He will explain, compare, and contrast their origins and approaches to art. He will trace the popularization and spread of Impressionism from a small, at first unpopular movement in France to one of the most beloved art styles in history.
