Three French revolutions -- the Revolution of 1789, the 1848 Revolution and the Paris Commune (1870) accompanied significant intellectual and cultural changes. Artists used their works to show patriotism and dissent, from the importance of order and reason in Neo-classicism to Romanticism’s emphasis on emotion and Impressionism’s use of light and color. Examine the changes these revolutions brought, focusing on the relationship between art and political upheaval. Enjoy a free PMA field trip/lecture on Monday 4/15 highlighting related artwork.
