The Impressionists on YouTube
I actually watched each one-hour episode on YouTube over several days. Click here for an accurate summary of the series on Wikipedia. Although, if you're a fan of Impressionism like I am, you will probably want to watch it no matter what any reviewers say.
It's especially interesting, I think, to those of us who have read or studied the lives and times of the Impressionists as it brings to life on-screen the trials and tribulations of these now-famous painters in a way that cannot be captured in a book. Of course, if all you want to do is look at their paintings, then a good coffee-table book on Impressionism is the way to go.
Anyway, I hope you can find the time to watch this program. The easiest way to find it is to go to Google>YouTube and in the query box simply type in The Impressionists Part 1.
How did we manage before YouTube?
