FOUR: Impressionism and Post-Impressionism

Course Description

At the moment of perfect ripeness in the development of French painting in the late 1800s, Impressionism burst forth like fireworks and changed art forever. Post-Impressionism laid the foundation of modernism.

Post-Impressionism brought us van Gogh, Gauguin, and Cézanne, the giants who laid the foundation of modernism.
