What does the art of the past mean to the artist of the present? In this ongoing program, moderated by Kimbell staff, artists and architects discuss works in the Museum’s collection, share the special insights of the practicing professional, and relate older art to contemporary artistic concerns, including their own. The program is free and requires no reservations.
Recorded at many of the locations where the movement emerged and took shape, British art critic Waldemar Januszczak explores the cultural factors and formal concerns that motivated the Impressionists to depart from tradition and forge their own stylistic path. These films also look at scientific advances that allowed the new visual idiom to develop.
