During their lives, painters of what was to become the Impressionist School, could earn enough so as to buy an evening’s meal, but today, their reprinted works are sold for pennies, showcased in the likes of puzzles, book covers, even computer desktop wallpaper and themes. In this video, Ross King explores this cultural phenomenon, namely, of how the works of Impressionist painters which, during their time, were rejected, have come to be admired and praised today, which he has detailed in his text The Judgment of Paris: The Revolutionary Decade that Gave the World Impressionism. Citing historical phenomena and evidence, King sets out to chronicle the movement by which the works of a group of nobodies had, by the late 19th and early 20th centuries, literally transformed the way the world saw itself. King speaks about Impressionism as an American phenomenon insofar as it is here that it became popular, or spoke to an audience and was accordingly, well received. A particular theory of King’s is that before impressionism, public and critical taste arose together, whereas, with the rise of impressionism a gap between the two started to open up.
