ART 206 Impressionism and Post-Impressionism: From Monet and Cassatt to Van Gogh and Cézanne(3 credits)
This course will examine paintings produced between the mid nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. We will consider artists from many countries who worked and exhibited in Paris at this time, including Monet, Renoir, Degas, and Cassatt. This course also will include discussion of artists who immediately followed the Impressionists, such as Manet, Seurat, Cézanne, Van Gogh and Gauguin. We will consider the reception of these artists’ works by their contemporaries and since, and examine these works within their wider artistic, cultural, political, and social contexts.
