External Relations, University of Regina
MetadataShow full item record
Impressionism is one of the most popular and influential movements in the history of art. Iconic scenes of ballerinas and lily ponds currently grace everything from tote bags and T-shirts to computer screensavers and wallpaper for mobile phones. However, at its inception, Impressionism was probably the most reviled artistic style in history. Ross King, an alumnus of the University of Regina, will explore these contrasting impressions of Impressionism in his illustrated lecture, "The Judgement of Paris: Rivalries and Reputations in Nineteenth-Century French Art" on Wed. Mar. 1 at 3:30 p.m. in room 100, Classroom Building, University of Regina. The lecture is open to the public, free of charge, and will be followed by a reception and book signing.
