Course Title: 19th Century French Art
Course Number: C2227973
Course Description: The bright colours and visible brushstrokes of Impressionism, so familiar now, were once a daring reaction to academic painting. In focusing on the everyday (Paris' rapidly changing city-scape, leisure and even a little industry) the Impressionists' subject-matter was novel, too. This course examines this artistic context, including some comparison with 'mainstream', academic French art. We focus on many fascinating images, by Monet, Renoir, Mary Cassatt, Berthe Morisot, Gustave Caillebotte and more. And looking more widely we turn to some fascinating and little known Impressionists who came from Australia and Peru to settle in late 19c Paris.
