May 20th Walking Tour French Impressionism Art
Join us at the National Gallery of Art for the French Impressionism Art Collection, Washington, D.C. Your guide Christine will point out her favorite Impressionism Artists as she takes you through the different key artists in this dynamic modern art movement. You will enjoy seeing several works by Berthe Morisot, Mary Cassatt, Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, Vincent van Gogh, Degas, and more. And learn what defines their style within the impressionism art movement.
Our tour will include artworks from various points of time within this art movement. These women and men emerged as rogue cutting-edge painters who did not confirm traditional values. These artists broke boundaries by joining the suffrage movement, refusing to conform to the Salon establishment, and changing societal norms.
This is a walking tour, please wear comfortable shoes and clothing. Masks are required unless the Museum says it is optional.
