Art Talks: Revolutionaries: The Impressionists and Post-Impressionists
Join us for an in-depth conversation about M.S. Rau’s latest exhibition Revolutionaries: The Impressionists and Post-Impressionists with Rebecca Rau, the exhibition curator Amanda Chunn, and Dr. Alexis Culotta, professor of Art History at Tulane University. Few artistic movements have had such a lasting impact as the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists, who shocked the art world by rebelling against the prevailing classical ideals. Our virtual panel will explore the historical context of these movements, while also highlighting key works in the exhibition and welcoming questions from the audience.

Webinar Highlights:

* Experience a virtual tour of our latest exhibition, Revolutionaries: The Impressionists and Post-Impressionists
* Explore the iconic artistic movements of Impressionism, Neo-Impressionism, American Impressionism and Post-Impressionism
* Learn from experts on artists such as Claude Monet, Berthe Morisot, Childe Hassam and Pierre Bonnard
* Q&A from the audience

The exhibition, which is on view through January 7, explores the vital impact of Impressionism on the work of the Neo-Impressionists and Post-Impressionists, particularly in their scientific methodologies and avant-garde use of color.

Alexis Culottta
Art Professor @Tulane University
Alexis Culotta specializes in the art and architecture of sixteenth-century Rome. Her research investigates the working relationships of artists and how the tensions of competition, collaboration, and innovation drove artistic and architectural practice in the Eternal City and beyond. More generally, her research and teaching interests include all topics relating to the Renaissance and Baroque eras, but of particular appeal are the Renaissance reception of and response to antiquity, the modes of workshop exchange during the era, and the reach of and reaction to period thought around the globe, and the benefits of digital humanities applications within the field. Of parallel interest is the evolution of Renaissance and Baroque ideologies into the eighteenth century among Italian artists amid the rise of the Grand Tour and the convergence of the art and souvenir markets.
