The Impressionists

To the contemporary world, it seems unimaginable that the beautiful, iconic paintings of the Impressionists could have caused Claude Monet, Paul Cezanne, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Edouard Manet, and Edgar Degas to become outcasts in the art world of their time – declaimed by the art world and the public alike. THE IMPRESSIONISTS is a unique mini-series starring Julian Glover (Troy, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade) as the 80 year old Claude Monet, looking back at his younger self, studying in Paris in 1862.

    I watched The Impressionists today and absolutely loved it. Please tell me if it will be repeated.

    Thanks

    The Impressionists is a superb mini-series that not only portrays the evolution of this significant art movement, but also captures the prevailing life styles and societal pressures of 19th century France which severely challenged these great artists. The characterization of individual artists was particularly enlightening. Bravo! Where can I order a DVD copy?

    Marci, This is the show I mentioned. It’s on Sunday. THE IMPRESSIONISTS was shown in November, but I am sure it will be shown again.
