New Englanders love Impressionism. And no wonder, when the Museum of Fine Arts has one of the world's most impressive collections of Impressionist art. In this 60-minute lecture, Topsfield resident and art professor Meg Black, Ph.D., will take attendees behind the scenes by sharing the history, stories, fun facts, and assorted scandals about Impressionism and the artists who made this bohemian movement so popular. The next time attendees visit the MFA, they will be well prepared to experience the art of Impressionism.
