At its inception, Impressionism was both ridiculed and praised by critics and audiences. What is the story behind the birth of the movement in 1874, and what impact did it have on the art world in Paris at the time?

NGV Senior Curator Ted Gott introduces the key artists that led the movement and sparked an artistic revolution, and considers their individual backgrounds and lasting resonance.

This program will be presented online. The broadcast link will be shared here the day before the program. To receive a reminder email please register your attendance.
