The French Impressionists: Revolution in Art & Society

May 21 | 1:00pm-2:30pm

The French Impressionists, a mid-19th century, art movement revolutionized the way art was depicted. The movement was inspired by a variety of factors, including anti-establishment sentiment, foreign/Asian influences, and a desire to paint everyday life. Their intent was to modernize the art world and move away from traditional academic subjects of history and mythology that had been the focus of art for centuries. The works of Manet, Renoir, Monet, Degas, and others, are still considered the best known and best-loved paintings in the art world.

French Impressionist Women: Mary Cassatt, Berthe Morisot, et al

Tuesday, July 16 | 1:00-2:30pm

For many decades, the four Women Impressionists: Berthe Morisot, MaryCassatt, Eva Gonzalès, Marie Bracquemond were treated with either pronounced ambivalence or outright hostility. They had few public exhibitions. However, these women—three French artists and one American artist living in Paris—were as innovative as their male counterparts—Edouard Manet, Edgar Degas, and Claude Monet. While they have diverse biographies, each of these artists overcame daunting obstacles to contribute to the development of Impressionism.

Picasso’s Women and Their World of Pain

Tuesday, August 20 | 1:00-2:30pm

The most important women in Picasso’s life knew from the moment they met him that they would pay dearly for his love. Two killed themselves and two went mad. Picasso had affairs with dozens of women, but six women– Fernande Olivier, Olga Khoklova, Marie-Thérèse Walter, Dora Maar, Françoise Gilot, and Jacqueline Roque –were a crucial catalyst in his development as an artist. Each woman represented a different period in his evolution as a master of 20th Century Art.

Gustav Klimt: Art Nouveau Visionary

Tuesday, September 17 | 1:00-2:30pm

Gustav Klimt was an Austrian symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession movement. Klimt is noted for his paintings, murals, sketches, and other “objects d’art.” Klimt’s primary subject was the female body and his works are marked by a frank eroticism. Among the artists of the Vienna Secession, Klimt was the most influenced by Japanese art and its methods. Klimt’s “Woman in Gold” and “The Kiss” are famous the world over.
