Join us for The Road To and Through Impressionism, Thursday, June 18, 7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Discover how art history progresses as the art pendulum swung throughout the 19th century. See their art and discover how the painting styles of Renoir and Monet changed during their careers. Hear how Impressionism got its name and why it was considered vulgar and ridiculous early on.
Fred Dixon and his wife Martha have traveled to major museums in the U.S. and Europe and to the great cathedrals in Italy to view Renaissance and Baroque art. There were two years of study at the Barnes Foundation followed by a docent training course. Fred and Martha were docents at the Barnes for ten years. All of this background culminated in the publication of Fred’s book 700 Years Of Art History: Pre-Renaissance To Modernism.
