  • Description:
    Season 1:

    Realism, the progressive movement in art and literature sought to depict the everyday social truths of the new industrial age. It continued to influence new approaches to the depiction of reality in the 20th Century. The Salon des Refusee in 1863 put European Art on an unprecedented path to new ways of seeing in the years that followed. In this course we will explore the influence of industrialization, urbanization and political change that so influenced the Symbolists, Impressionists and Post Impressionists. The art that they produced was to shape everything that followed.
