Other information

The Impressionists and their circle have become the international superstars of Western painting. The works of Manet, Monet, Renoir, Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec, Cezanne, Gauguin and Van Gogh appear everywhere and are well loved by the public and academics alike.

But whilst their popularity is greater than ever, it is easy to forget the revolutionary nature of the Impressionists’ art. They broke away from tradition, forsaking the studio for the open air; with their technique, of using touches of colour to capture movement and light, and with their subject matter as well, often depicting ordinary people at work and leisure.

Dr Michael Adcock, a cultural historian, returns to U3APP Seminars to discuss this technical and social revolution against the backdrop of works sourced from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; currently on show at the NGV until October 3rd.
