Art Appreciation Talks with Alastair Eales: Impressionism; A Gentle Revolution

25 November 2023 @ 14:30 - 15:30

Event Information

Join Alastair Eales for an informal afternoon of art appreciation and embark on a journey through Impressionism; the groundbreaking French movement that shaped Western art. Discover the lives and works of visionary artists like Pissarro, Monet, Cassatt, and Morisot. Experience the gentle revolution of this nascent modernist period, where traditional conventions were challenged and redefined. Explore the technological advancements that empowered these artists to capture fleeting moments with extraordinary precision – where light dances and colours harmonise, and reality merges with the intangible.
These talks will last approximately an hour with time for questions along the way.
