Film: In Open Air: A Portrait of the American ImpressionistsNoon - 1:30 p.m.Film: In Open Air: A Portrait of the American Impressionists
In Open Air: A Portrait of the American Impressionists captures the essence of the impressionist movement in America, a pivotal period in American art from 1880 to 1915. With the pace of life quickening at the end of the 19th century, painters were seeking new ways to look at and preserve traditional American scenes that were rapidly disappearing—stone fences, open countryside, picturesque settings. These tranquil images were painted outside, in open air. Visually stunning, In Open Air features some of the finest impressionist paintings created during this period and travels to favored locales that inspired the artists’ work. It explores the influence of the French impressionists and reveals how the American painters developed their own styles. 28 minutes.
