SUMMER 2018: Impressionists at Home: Lovers of the Light


Impressionists are known for their love of light, but let’s explore their homes and retreats. We will learn more intimately how they lived through the interiors of their homes. This will give us an extraordinary vantage point into the fashions and furnishings of this era which will enable us to appreciate the simple pleasures that this group of fascinating individuals enjoyed. The 19th century ushered in revolutionary new ways of heating, lighting and moving around, which in turn impacted and transformed interiors and private lives. We will include glimpses of their homes and private spaces—kitchens, bathing, dining, living and sleeping areas. Come cool off this summer in the interior spaces of the Impressionists!
