Art Appreciation I – French Impressionist / French Realist: Caillebotte & Tissot

April 17 @ 4:00 pm - April 19 @ 3:00 pm



Tutor:  Tim Stimson

Painting modern life was a challenge to the Victorians;  trousers and crinolines, so un-picturesque!  The approaches of these two Frenchmen were very different – Tissot focusing on the comedy of manners, and Caillebotte on Paris.

For the last 30 years, Tim has been a freelance cultural and art historian specialising in 17th and 19th century art and society.  He lectures for Cambridge University, the WEA, NADFAS and the Art Fund, and presents residential study courses in Britain and Europe.
