Illustrated Talk: The Painters called the Impressionists

Tuesday June 26 at 7pm

Join Dr. Stephen Borys, Director & CEO of the Winnipeg Art Gallery for an illustrated talk on the Painters called the Impressionists.

The WAG’s 2018 exhibition, French Moderns: Monet to Matisse, 1850-1950 brings to Winnipeg some of the finest works of Impressionism and Modernism in North America. Through their pioneering vision, the Impressionists sparked a revolution in modern art. In the end, they changed the way we view the world around us. This course is inspired by the exhibition, which features 75 paintings and sculptures, including works by many of the pioneers of their day, the painters called the Impressionists.
