Mr. Alexander surveys the tumultuous second half of the 19th century in Europe and the artists who responded to it with a wave of creativity that established Paris as the artistic “Capital” of the era. As industrialization, revolution, and war transformed both France and Paris, such remarkable artists as Courbet, Millet, Daumier, Manet, Monet, Renoir, Seurat, and Van Gogh responded with an astonishing flow of visual interpretations of the changing world around them. Join Mr. Alexander for close looks at the movements we call Realism, Impressionism, and Post Impressionism, and the artists who created them. And take a plunge into the grinding political and social forces that shaped these visions of a world in constant and rapid motion.
