French Impressionists Art Class
Main Meeting Room
Impressionists were the radicals of the 1870s taking on modern Paris by storm. We will look at the origins of French Impressionism, the ways the group challenged accepted practice in form, subject and in the way that the market influenced their work. We will also consider how two such different artists as Edgar Degas and Claude Monet could be considered part of the same movement and look as well at the reasons why French Impressionism was one of the first avant-garde movements where women exhibited regularly with favorable critical notice.
