Artscapades - Post Impressionism
On Monday, June 16, ArtScapades concludes the series with Post-Impressionism: From Objective to Subjective. This lecture details how art moved past Impressionism, the influence of a single art critic, and how stylistic disagreements and personal animosities eventually brought down the Impressionist movement.
ArtScapades will explore the lives and works of Paul Cézanne, Georges Seurat, Paul Gauguin, Vincent van Gogh and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.
Robin Hoffman and Jodi Stiffelman began ArtScapades in 2009 after teaching art appreciation for ten years in the New Canaan public school system. This is their fifth series of lectures at the New Canaan Library.
