Reflexions of Impressionism in America with Brigid Barton

Impressionism emerged as a style in 1870s France and very quickly spread among artists throughout Europe and the United States.  In this talk, Brigid Barton will explore the beginnings of Impressionism in and around Paris, as well as the variants of Impressionism which proliferated in artists’ colonies in America in the years before World War I. 

Brigid Barton is an art historian specializing in modern European art.  She is a retired professor from Santa Clara University and now teaches outreach courses for Stanford University, Santa Clara University, and the Jewish Community Center in Palo Alto.  She also lectures at the Stanford Museum and the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.
