2016 Impressionism Wall Calendar


Excluded from annual exhibitions of the staid Académie des Beaux-Arts, and ignored by the press, a group of artists living in Paris in the 1860s broke from tradition. And rather than adopting the Académie’s conservative painting techniques, they let their colors and brushstrokes run unbridled, attempting to capture a moment’s intimacy in the ever-changing play of light and the candid expressions of human emotion. This calendar features twelve such impressionist paintings by Edgar Degas, Paul Gauguin, Alfred Sisley, Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, Mary Cassatt, Auguste Renoir, Vincent Van Gogh, Berthe Morisot, and Edouard Manet.
