Paris in the Belle Epoque by Adrian Sumner

Impressionists, Post-Impressionists, Symbolists, Fauves and Cubists

From the 1890s to the Great War, Paris was the centre of the artistic world, generating movement after movement in fine art fro the ferment of artists who gathered there fro all over the world.


We will see how the Romantic movement and the Salon gave way to successive waves of innovation, created by artists who have shaped not just Modernism, but the way in which we see the world. This lecture looks at the effortless genius of Manet, the Worldly Beauty created by Monet and the Impressionists, the rush of colour and emotion generated by Van Gogh, Gauguin and the thrilling diversity of Post-Impressionism, the dreaming other-worldliness of Symbolism and Art Nouveau, and the Shock of the New confronted by Fauvism and Cubism. And the School of Paris itself, of course.
