AHT 4040 - Impressionism and Post-Impressionism


Between 1860 and 1900, painting and sculpture in France reflected massive social and political change. The Impressionists Manet, Monet and Degas depicted the glittering grands boulevards, cafés and theaters of the newly renovated Paris, while revealing class and gender differences observed in “lowbrow” lithographic imagery. The Post-Impressionists reacted to this celebration of modernity with radical shifts in style and subject matter, as artists like Gauguin, Van Gogh and Cézanne, motivated by a new vision of the artist’s role in society, began to explore their own interior sensibilities. The course will also compare these avant-garde trends with more conservative academic works. Credits: 4 Formerly AHT 404
