Not just pretty pictures! Once you take this course you will realize the courage it took for Impressionist artists to rebel against the more conservative and hierarchical art of the past as they initiated new styles and subject matters. The Impressionists emerged during a period of great societal change, and created the most famous artistic movement in history.

The primary focus of the class will be the foremost vanguards (avant-gardes) of the era. You can expect to see examples of Realism (Daumier, Courbet, Corot, Daubigny), and Impressionism (Manet, Monet, Morisot, Cassatt, Renoir, Pissarro, Caillebotte.) Not all Impressionists are French, as you will realize when we study those from Italy, Germany, Spain, and the United States.

Joan Lipton, Ph.D. is an independent lecturer and art historian who has held numerous workshops in colleges, alumni associations, adult education centers and libraries in New York City and New Jersey.
