In this landmark four part series the art critic Waldemar Januszczak explores the revolutionary achievements of the Impressionists, through the stories of some of Art’s most famous painters: Monet, Degas and Van Gogh, as well as less-known Impressionists such as Caillebotte, Cassatt and Braquemond.
Although today Impressionism is considered appropriate for chocolate boxes, Januszczak argues that it was actually a remarkably exciting and radical movement in Art.
Travelling from the shores of the West Indies, to the city of Paris and the suburbs of London, Januszczak explores the key locations that inspired the Impressionists, and discovers the ground-breaking scientific advancements that allowed the movement to flourish.

1.【繪畫革命】本集可看到有史以來最偉大的畫作,以及最偉大的畫家,有莫內、雷諾瓦、梵谷、 塞尚和高更,印象派的故事就是他們的故事,是叛逆和勇氣的歷程,莫內畫了一些美術史上,最勇敢的圖畫,而雷諾瓦畫了一些最活潑的,竇加則是釋放芭蕾舞,秀拉釋放點畫派,梵谷 他釋放出色彩,他們的貢獻可說是為藝術界帶來大革命。2.【油畫和革命&偉大的戶外】印象派最著名的是什麼!?是戶外畫作。於印象派戶外活動中,當然也看到很多陽光,印象派畫家們用新方法觀察和紀錄大自然,莫內的畫好像與世無爭,雷諾瓦也一樣,那些跳舞和午餐的美麗景象,輕鬆舒服,畢沙羅也一樣,金黃色的玉米田、晴朗的果園,即使他畫 冬季,他也會使寒冷看起來很受歡迎,印象派畫家的戶外畫作,是他們對繪畫最大的貢獻,大家都熱愛的東西,其實非常難畫,達成這種愉悅的戶外輕鬆感覺,比看起來要困難得多了。
3.【繪畫和革命&繪畫人物】對印象派畫家來說,留在室內觀察人物,跟到戶外觀察風景同樣重要,在印象派畫作裡, 有許多流傳很久的名作,讓人看得見當代的社會及人文景緻。如竇加所繪的「芭蕾舞孃」,充份可知當時劇場界的故事,與其後的秘辛,像雷諾瓦等人,亦出繪當時中產階級人物 的生活。

4.【繪畫和革命:最後盛況】本集中探討關於色彩輪和光學的一些複雜技術問題,以秀拉的『大碗島上的星期天下午』(嘉德島的假日午後)為例,在1886年的印象派畫展中出現時,大家都注意到了,印象派在這裡顯然有新東西出現,秀拉製造出現代巴黎的刻板印象,一個正面、一個反面,現代 世界的兩面隔著一條河,互相對峙。


公視的節目說明應該向英文學習,介紹要求全貌簡述 (末行his later waterlily paintings in the Orangerie in Paris也過份簡單,背後的故事很有意思,如Mason說那兒是現代藝術的Sistine Chapel......),而不是拿一處說說:我讀過John Russel的Seurat 專書和Monet多本專書,這節目都給我些新知識。

Final Flourish



Art writer Waldemar Januszczak explores the revolutionary achievements of the Impressionists.As the name suggests Waldemar Januszczak's aim is to show that despite appearing on chocolate boxes and tea towels the impressionists' art was and still is pretty revolutionary. Despite veering into gimmickry from time to time the series covers the ground well. The last episode, in which he considers the optical theories underlying Seurat's dottiness and how Monet's cataracts affected his vision, is perhaps the best of the lot.

[edit]Gang of Four

In the first episode, Waldemar delves into the back stories of four of the most influential Impressionists - Pissarro, Monet, Renoir and Bazille - who together laid the foundations of the artistic movement. He finds out what social and cultural influences drove them to their style of painting, how they were united and how ultimately they challenged and changed art forever. Waldemar journeys from the shores of the West Indies, to the progressive city of Paris to the suburbs of South London, where these four artists drew inspiration from the cities and towns in which they lived. He discovers how the Impressionists broke conventions by depicting every day encounters within the unpredictable and ever changing sights around them. 

[edit]The Great Outdoors

Waldemar Januszczak continues his investigation of the Impressionists by taking us outdoors to their most famous locations. Although Impressionist pictures often look sunny and relaxed, achieving this peaceful air was hard work. Trudging through fog, wind and rain, across treacherous coastal rocks and knee-deep snow, Waldemar shows us how the famous spontaneity of the Impressionists is thoroughly misleading. This episode visits the French riverside locations that Monet loved to paint, and where Renoir captured the bonhomie of modern life. Waldemar also introduces a number of technical and practical developments of the age which completely revolutionised Impressionist painting - the invention of portable easels; the use of hog's hair in paint brushes; as well as the introduction of the railway through France. Plus, Januszczak explains Cezanne's part in the Impressionist story. 

[edit]Painting the People

Waldemar Januszczak continues his investigation of the Impressionists, focusing on the people they painted and in particular the subjects of Degas, Caillebotte and the often forgotten Impressionist women artists. The Impressionists are famous for painting landscape but they were just as determined to paint people. Looking closely at the work of Edgar Degas, (他的姓氏讀法如出身貴族、他的厭女;"斯巴達女性挑戰男性是著名Jacques-Louis David的 Oath of the Horatii (from 1786)之戲仿......)Waldemar reveals how he consistently challenged traditions and strove to record real life as it appeared in the city. Waldemar also reveals the unusual viewpoints and dramatic perspectives of Caillebotte's paintings (真正有錢人;解釋為什麼要將木頭地板刨出一道道痕,因為整體地板均勻;畫室多亮色,讓陽光進來越多越好) from the Place de L'Europe and the rebellious and revolutionary art of Morisot, Bracquemond (她的作品多在陶器上頭)and Cassatt, three impressive female artists who were eagerly embraced by the progressive movement of Impressionism. (這集還介紹高更,因為他棄家到大溪地時已43歲,藝術生涯已可觀。)

[edit]Final Flourish

This episode takes a closer look at the late years of Impressionism, using the last show these artists did together as a starting point. Waldemar looks in considerable depth at the work of Georges Seurat, taking into consideration his academic training at the Beaux-Arts School in Paris and the artists that influenced him, such as Piero della Francesca and Puvis de Chavannes. There is also an insight into the complex but fascinating world of optics and art, and the ways in which the Impressionists were using the new discoveries in light and eyesight to influence their work. Van Gogh's time in Paris, a period very little is known about, is also covered, charting the incredible journey the artist made from his brown and dull canvases to the splendid colour and light that pervaded his work on the cusp of his departure for the South of France. The film finishes with a revisiting of Monet and his later waterlily paintings in the Orangerie in Paris.
