October 11, Lecture 1: Edouard Manet: The Maverick
Manet is perceived as the rebellious leader of the avant-garde. Through his assimilation of a variety of styles, from Japanese prints to the interest in light of the Impressionists, Manet created art which portrayed the modern world.

November 8, Lecture 2: Claude Monet: The Painter of Light
Monet’s revolutionary ideas about light and color, his reverence for nature, and his acute perceptions of the modern world make him the master of Impressionism.

December 13, Lecture 3: Paul Cezanne: The Vision
Picasso called Cezanne “The father of us all.” It is said that Cezanne taught the world to see in a new way – he had the power to convey the essence of a landscape while eliminating much of the detail.
