April: Monet vs. The Expressionists
Wednesday April 17, 7pm
Impressionism and Expressionism emerged at the turn of the 20th Century, both reacting to a changing modern world. As the father of Impressionism, Monet found truth in an artistic language based in fleeting impressions captured with spontaneity and pure color. While his scenes and subjects communicate as a growing sense of isolation in modern society, his work was in direct contrast to the lurid colors and intense emotion the Expressionists railing against the dehumanizing effects of Industrialism.
