Monet, Pissarro and the Impressionist Movement

4/24/2013
6:30 - 8:00

Richmond/Senator Milton Marks

Richmond Meeting Room

351 9th Ave

It's Paris, 1874, and the world of art is about to change forever. Join Marlene Aron as she presents a beautiful slide presentation of over one hundred works of art by Monet, Renoir, Cezanne, Morisot, Lauttrec, Sisley, Degas, Pissarro and Van Gogh--artists who experienced and expressed the world about them, each in their own unique and personal way.

The effect of light on nature. Joyous use of color. Expressive use of line. Dance Hall girls, ballet dancers, water lilies, peasants, gardens laborers. They gathered together in studios, cafes, bars and on the streets to talk and argue about art, its meaning, and how and what to paint. Together they shaped the Avant-garde world of Impressionism, and opened the doors to the Modern Art Movement of the 20th Century and beyond.
