Crash Course: Monet and His Circle – Morning
$75 (Members: $66, Students: $45)
When a group of radical painters displayed their works at the Nadar photographic studio in 1874, they were criticized for their new style and the seemingly unfinished quality of their work. Newspaper critics dubbed them “Impressionists,” and their work continues to elicit public and scholarly fascination.
Discover how artists, including Monet, Degas, and Renoir, railed against academic tradition to become truly revolutionary, ushering in a new era of visual art. Touch on the impact of the artists who preceded and followed this movement including Manet, Van Gogh, and Matisse. This class is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Monet and the Modern City, opening May 25, 2019.
