Peter Trippi Lecture Jan 25th at GCA

Please join us on Wednesday, January 25 from 5-6 pm for a lecture by Fine Art Connoisseur editor Peter Trippi:

Not Just Impressionism: A Broader Look at European Painting 1880-1900

Almost everybody seems to admire Monet, Renoir, and the other French Impressionists, and well they should.  Yet there was a whole lot more going on in Western European painting during the Imps’ heyday.  In this illustrated talk, former Dahesh Museum of Art director Peter Trippi stands back to compare and contrast the disparate movements and schools thriving in the very late 19th century from Dublin to Moscow, from Helsinki to Valencia.  Since it would be impossible to explore these regions in any depth within one hour, his discussion will offer instead a contextual framework that today’s artists can use to better understand their 19th-century forerunners, then pursue their own in-depth investigations.
