Wesleyan Institute for Lifelong Learning Associate Director Richard J. Friswell, M.Ed., M.Phil. will explore the eighty-year period leading up to the appearance of the first series of Impressionist paintings shown in public, in 1874. Beginning with the French Revolution and the reign of Napoleon Bonaparte, the discussion will trace a series of events in French cultural history, making it possible for a small artistic community to feel safe challenging the power elite—both in government and among society’s taste-makers.
