THE ARTS SOCIETY - KENNET AND SWINDON

 

The lecture:

The Seine Estuary: Capturing the Nineteenth Century imagination -

birthplace of Impressionism

 

 

The Society will meet promptly at 10.55 on Monday, 19th November
at the Ellendune Centre, Wroughton.  
Coffee will be served from 10.00. Guests are always welcome.
Potential members may use this excellent lecture as a 'taster'.

This lecture will look at the host of artists who flocked to the picturesque harbour of

Honfleur, France and its surroundings in the late 19th century.
It is about the birthplace of Impressionism and the influences on young artists such as Turner

and others who were later to become the Impressionists:

Boudin, Courbet, Jongkind, Daubigny, and then Monet, Bazille, Pissarro, Manet and Degas.

They painted seascapes as well as the new fashionable seaside resorts of Trouville and Deauville.
 
The lecturer: Carole Petipher is a guide and lecturer on combined history/art tours in France, with over ten years' experience.

Life aboard river vessels on the Seine, Oise, Marne and Rhone offered the chance

to explore and further research on certain riverside locations linked to these artists.
