This course examines the changes in French art after the Revolution of 1789, the Romantic tradition established by Delacroix and Gericault and the challenge to Ingres. 1848 saw the establishment of political realism with Courbet and the Barbizon painters. By 1863 Manet and Degas were responding to Baudelaire by painting modern life, which led to Impressionism. By the 1880s the Symbolists, Gauguin, Van Gogh and Cezanne had arrived, bringing the Post Impressionism which lays the foundation for 20th century art. There will be a gallery visit each term.
