Organised by the London Events Volunteer Fundraising Committee

The Impressionists and the painting of Modern life, by Lois Oliver

Talk | Royal Over-Seas League

Monday 21 November 2016 - 15:00 until 16:00

In his influential essay The Painter of Modern Life (1863), Charles Baudelaire described his ideal artist going out into the city to seek out new subjects for art: a ‘flâneur’, or ‘passionate spectator’, rejoicing in the experience of the crowd. Taking this essay as a starting point, this lecture explores celebrated paintings of Parisian life by artists including Manet, Degas, Renoir and Cassatt.

This event has been organised by the London Events Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
