Impressionism revolutionized painting in France and beyond, starting in the 1860s and 1870s. Despite the enormous popularity of this style today, it was not embraced at first. In fact, Impressionist painters such as Claude Monet and Auguste Renoir were soundly criticized, and their paintings failed to attract patrons. Their approach to art simply broke too many of the rules long established by the art academies. Wealthy collectors would not buy it and critics panned it, repeatedly, in major journals and newspapers.
This class will briefly look at "establishment" art of the time and outline what made Impressionist art so daring and modern. Director of adult programs Mary Lenihan will lead the class, starting with an introductory lecture and followed by a discussion in the galleries before the museum opens to the public.
