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.
