The six programs in this collection from Kultur Films provide an in-depth look into the fascinating world of the Impressionists and their art. The programs place each artist in historical context, highlighting the events that inspired their work.
Manet — Meet 19th century French painter Edouard Manet. Known as an experimental artist and innovator, Manet painted such commonplace figures as urchins, beggars, and café characters. In addition, he painted picturesque landscapes using bold lighting, simple colors, and vivid brushstrokes. Although his work inspired the Impressionist style, he did not label it as such. Expert analysis and commentary on Manet’s paintings further illuminate his life and career.
