ENCORE SCREENING FROM THE IMPRESSIONISTS: PAINTING AND REVOLUTION,

A FILM SERIES AT THE KIMBELL ART MUSEUM

The Great Outdoors (2011, 60 min.)

The Kimbell Art Museum presents a free screening of “The Great Outdoors” (2011, 60 min.) at 2 p.m. on Sunday, December 18, in the Kahn Auditorium. This screening is part of “The Impressionists: Painting and Revolution,” a film series at the Museum. No reservations are required. Admission is free.

In “The Great Outdoors,” British art critic Waldemar Januszczak travels to the Impressionists’ favorite locations, often in less-than-ideal weather conditions. In doing so, he illuminates how, despite the relaxed nature of Impressionist paintings, achieving plein-air compositions could be grueling, and their spontaneity was often misleading. He also addresses technical innovations that helped to revolutionize painting in the 19th century, such as the invention of portable easels and the use of new materials in paintbrushes.

“The Impressionists: Painting and Revolution” will show on selected dates at the Museum throughout the coming months. Recorded at many of the locations where the movement emerged and took shape, the series explores the cultural factors and formal concerns that motivated the Impressionists to depart from tradition and forge their own stylistic path. These films also look at scientific advances that allowed the new visual idiom to develop.
