Impressions of Light: A New Way of Seeing
Provider: Wesley Clarke, Collections Manager & Archaeologist – The Castle
Just as the 1880s and 1890s witnessed significant developments in technology, society, and politics, so too did the artistic realm conceive of new ways to visually interpret experience. Impressionism was perhaps the art movement of this period with the greatest influence on succeeding eras, up to the present day. This presentation will include a brief introduction to Impressionism, and look for its influences in The Castle collections and works in your own home.
