“It’s not over till it’s over” as the saying goes. Impressionism (ca. 1860-1886) and Post-Impressionism (ca. 1886-1920) are once again making headlines in the art world with exciting new exhibits and scholarship. The Gallery Associates’ 2022 Sunday Art Lecture Series contributes to new ways of thinking about how this art movement began to reflect and frame modernity with its four illustrated talks exploring the theme “Cosmopolitan Impressionisms: Modern Art in the Making.” When the term Impressionism comes to mind, we think “French.” But this movement, which ushered in modern art, was more cosmopolitan than that. Through exhibitions, ethnographic museums, private collections, and the presence of foreign students, aspiring artists, and diaspora communities, influences from other cultures such as those of Japan, Africa, Oceania, and the Americas contributed to the Impressionist and Post-Impressionist movements in France and elsewhere. The 2022 Associates Sunday Art Lecture Series explores such cosmopolitan connections, cultural shifts and reconfigurations that contributed dynamically to the making of a richly diverse modern art, including new worldviews that came to mediate the local and the global.
