Great Impressionists

Daniela Palitos

Thurs 9.30am – 11am

May 23, 30  June 13, 20, 27 (NB no class on June 6)

We probably know an Impressionist painting when we see one. At least most people are familiar with Monet’s water lilies! But who were the Impressionists and what motivated them?

In these five sessions Daniela will take you from the breakaway with the Romantic School of painting and will look at what distinguishes Impressionist painting from what came before. Daniela will begin session one by showing and discussing paintings by the influential Danish- French painter, Camille Pissarro and his followers. In the second week Daniela will continue with French Impressionism including paintings by Monet and Albert Sisley, the British landscape painter who was born and lived in France.

The third week will remain in France with Manet and Degas but the fourth and fifth sessions will cover the work of many of our own Australian Impressionists, the Heidelberg, plein air school which includes Tom Roberts, Frederick McCubbin Arthur Streeton and others.
