Today Impressionist art is found on T-shirts and mugs, but it wasn't always popular. London Sunday Times art critic Waldemar Januszczak hosts a lively guide to these revolutionary and influential artists, visiting their studios and the rustic vistas that inspired them. It's a super introduction to Monet, Manet, Degas, Seurat, Cezanne, Pissarro, Berthe Morisot, Mary Cassat, Van Gogh, and other greats.

I found this DVD an excellent study on Impressionism Art. The DVD kept your interest, was very informative and original in it's presentation. It brought the Artists close to you as living men with their genius as well as their problems in their life time.

On some levels, this documentary is excellent - great overviews on the main Impressionists. Parts seemed too gratuitous - is it really necessary to do live recreations of nude scenes from famous paintings in order to discuss them?
