From Monet to Van Gogh

A History of Impressionism

by Richard Brettell

Title Details

Running Time
12 Hrs.


Impressionism changed the way that people see the world. These artists documented life in the latter half of the 19th century and provided models of behavior, decorum, and urban beauty that persist to this day.

This series of lectures will introduce viewers to the style, subject, and function of Impressionist painting by artists including Monet, Renoir, Cassatt, CĂ©zanne, Toulouse-Lautrec, and Van Gogh.

With professor Richard Brettell as your expert curator and guide, this course creates a vivid, "virtual" museum through which to appreciate the genius and enduring accomplishments of the men and women who, in but a few short decades, forever changed the art of painting.
