French Cultural Center Alliance Française of Boston
In January, the French Cultural Center Alliance Française of Boston took a trip along the Seine river to learn more about the impressionist movement. In this second session they will focus on The City of Lights. Join art historian Marie-Pierre Rondeau to learn the special story between Paris and the 19th century Avant-Garde group of artists who were later called the Impressionists. During this new journey, Marie-Pierre will describe and analyze the paintings created outdoors, in Paris and villages around. The presentation will refer to the works of painters such as Claude Monet, Renoir, Sisley, Pissarro, Van Gogh, and others.
