Description

Impressionist painting is now so popular and familiar that we struggle to see it as shocking or avant-garde, yet it originally caused uproar and controversy which continued into the 20th century.

This film explains why experimental 19th-century developments in French painting caused such a stir, as artists adopted a radically modern approach in their subjects, compositions and techniques, and challenged the academic conventions of the day.

Introducing an extraordinary period of art history, this DVD features well-loved paintings by Monet, Seurat, Cezanne, Renoir and Degas and included location footage in France and interviews with curatorial and conservation experts at the National Gallery, London.
