4 sem. hrs. Students study the periods and artists in Europe who paved the way for the development of Impressionism in the 1860s, including the influence of photography on art after 1840. The class frequently visits the superb 19th century painting collection at the Museum of Fine Arts to study in person the works of Cassatt, Manet, Degas, Monet, and others. The course also considers significant subject and stylistic changes as artists moved away from Impressionism around 1900.
