Artist: French Impressionism

Covering both the history of the Museum, The Musee D’Orsay, and the Impressionist magnificent artistic masterpieces that adorn its walls, this documentary gives a guided tour through Paris’ unique museum, home of the French School of Impressionism. From Manet to Renoir, images of Water Lily Pond to the racetrack, and fashion to politics, this program covers the historic rise and the crucial, defining aspects of Impressionism, looking through the frames at the lasting influence of the popular art movement.

 

Out of the grim realities of Realism and the overblown flights of Romanticism, the Impressionist Movement redefined European art with its broad tidal waves of light and color, and its visions of Paris and France, in the late Nineteenth Century.

 

Impressionists provided their new definition of painting by taking their easel outside the studio and creating works inspired by the broad rainbow of color rather then the particular details of the subject. This installment of the Art & Splendor Series covers famed Impressionists such as Monet, Degas, Morisot, Lautrec, Latour, Whistler, Cassatt, Renoir, Manet, and their influence on post-impressionists painters such as Van Gogh, Saurat, Gauguin, Rousseau, and Cezanne. Located along ParisSeine River, The Musee D’Orsay has grown into one of the preeminent Museums in the artistic heritage of Paris, now exhibiting the world’s most comprehensive collection of Impressionist works.
