A new exhibition at the Art Institute allows us to examine the impact of French Impressionism on an American city at the turn of the 20th century. But what formative experiences and events moved artists to participate in this modern movement? This class sees works of art by Claude Monet, and those of his colleagues and friends, through the frame of a historical moment in France with startling parallels to our own time. Each week we will discuss themes from the previous week's lecture and readings, and propose questions for the following week's discussion.
