About The Impressionists: Pissarro
This is the story of the life and work of Camille Pissarro, the West-Indian born leader of the original Impressionists and the only artist from that school to exhibit at all eight of the exhibitions from 1874 to 1886. A considerable influence on Cezanne and Gauguin at the beginning of their careers, Pissarro’s great works include the famous Boulevard Montmartre which hangs today in the National Gallery, London.
About The Impressionists: Renoir
Pierre August Renoir’s brilliant Le Moulin de la Gallette created immense controversy in its day. Famous for his use of hot reds, orange and gold to portray nudes in sunlight, Renoir’s later life was blighted by arthritis, which crippled his hands. This fascinating story of the man and his work includes a visit to the artist’s home Cagnes-sur-Mer on the island of La Grenouillere, and unique footage of an Impressionist festival.
About The Impressionists: Seurat
This program is an entertaining and informative profile of Georges Pierre Seurat, the inventor of the technique known rectangles of pure color which merge together when viewed from afar. Seurat completed only seven canvasses in this hugely complex technique, including the superb Une Baignade. This is the story of an artist who achieved much in his short life.
