Why is French Impressionist art so attractive to our eyes, when it caused such a sensation back in the late 19th century? Impressionism is not only stunningly beautiful, but it also began to break the bounds of traditional realism, so that it was hard to understand back then. Since that time, however, abstraction has become much more radical, so that Impressionism seems even more calm and relaxing to our modern eyes.
Retired Humanities professor Susan Wadsworth will address these issues in Impressionism. Come see the beautiful works of Monet, Renoir, Degas, and others. Learn what these artists were thinking and what makes them different.
