Part two, A Fresh View-Impressionism and Post-Impressionism, features the first giants of the modern age from Courbet and Manet to the Impressionists Monet, Degas and Renoir.

Lecture: Norman Rockwell: Painter (or Illustrator?) of AmericaNoonLecture: Norman Rockwell: Painter (or Illustrator?) of America
As famous and admired as he is, some in the art world still categorize Norman Rockwell as an "Illustrator" as if he were not also a fine artist. Indeed, Rockwell is often at the center of a long-running debate among art specialists as to whether or not such a distinction (between artist and illustrator) is, or ever was, valid. In his talk, CMA Chief Curator Will South examines how useful (or not) this argument has been to understanding Norman Rockwell, an artist so often cited as defining American values.
