The Heroism of Modern Life: Édouard Manet and the Impressionists

Educational
Nov 6, 2018

Impressionism has been one of the most popular and enduring artistic movements in history. However, in the 1860s and 1870s the young French painters suffered ridicule and abuse as, led by Édouard Manet, they rebelled against a powerful artistic establishment. What made their art so shocking and so threatening? And why, by contrast, is Impressionism so popular today? This illustrated lecture will look at the radical artistic aims of the Impressionists and their struggles to capture the modern world.
