A Visual History of Impressionism

New date: April 21, 6:30-7:30 PM

Impressionist artists turned the art world upside down in the mid-1800s. Where did this movement start, and who were the strongest influencers on Impressionist artists? Learn this and more about artists Daubigny, Boudin, Monet, Sisley, and Pissaro from art expert and TML patron Ernest Pevny.

This promises to be an excellent discussion with beautiful slides to match.

Here’s more about our presenter
Ernest Pevny was born in 1936 in Bratislava, Czechoslovakia (now the Slovak Republic). He studied painting with one of the  leading artists of his native country, Michal Tillner, while attending medical school. He practiced medicine for over forty years during which time he pursued painting and music. In addition to oil paintings, his other media include watercolors and pencil drawings. His paintings were exhibited in his native country, in Houston, Texas, and the Dutot Museum in Delaware Water Gap, PA. He moved to Maine in 2018 where he enjoys painting the beautiful Maine seashore.
