The Impressionists: A Good One #103
Art historian (and daring fashion plate with a fondness for crushed velvet) Tim Marlow gives a tour of famous Impressionist paintings. Nearly exactly like Great Artists Two, only Tim gives you a moment of quiet to reflect on the work before elaborating. I watched Manet, Monet, Renoir, Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec, and Cezanne on Netflix before nodding off in front of the computer. Did you know Monet painted these 8 massive (6 feet x 40 feet) Water Lillies paintings when he was 80 and had cataracts?
I know! I'm hoping to still be alive at 80. Considering my diet consists of cupcakes and coffee the outlook is not good. Anyway, here's a clip.
