Monet and Cézanne
Instructor: Michael Rossman, MFA
Monet and Cézanne led painting away from representation and narrative toward a celebration of human vision. Their work established a new respect for the capacity of the human eye. A hallmark of Monet’s paintings is his depiction of color and light. Through three outstanding examples at the Barnes—Madame Monet Embroidering, The Studio Boat, and Monsieur Coqueret (Father)—Monet displays his signature techniques. For Cézanne, the quarry at Bibémus, the valley of the Arc river, and the countryside near Gardanne are places of the heart. In Cézanne’s paintings of Aix-en-Provence in the 1880s, he applied the ideas he had honed to the landscape of his youth.Mondays, October 13–November 3 (4 classes)
