Our journey through art begins with a work that sparked outrage and revolutionized the art world: Edouard Manet's controversial masterpiece, Luncheon on the Grass.

As we continue our exploration of French Impressionism, we now turn our attention to the brilliant and dynamic works of Paul Cézanne.

Cézanne's unique style, which emphasized the geometric structure of natural forms, set him apart from his Impressionist peers and foreshadowed the rise of Post-Impressionism. His use of color and form laid the groundwork for artists like van Gogh and Gauguin, who took Impressionism to new and daring heights.

Our tour concludes with a look at the work of Vincent van Gogh, one of the most celebrated Post-Impressionist painters of all time. Through his bold use of color and expressive brushwork, van Gogh broke new ground in the art world and left an indelible mark on the history of painting.
