Reacting, Rebelling, and Responding

Impressionism and Beyond

Centered on the museum’s collection of European art from 1860 to 1945, this tour will engage students in thinking critically about how artists reacted to the social, political, and technological changes of the modern age. Students will examine the diversity and creativity of art from this period, including examples of Impressionism, Post-Impressionism, Cubism, and more. Through collaborative discussion, debate, and personal written response, students will be challenged to interpret works of art using their own observations as well as information drawn from contemporary sources.
