FORT WORTH—-The Kimbell Art Museum presents a free screening of “Gang of Four” (2011, 60 min.) at 2 p.m. on Sunday, December 11, 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 “Gang of Four,” British art critic Waldemar Januszczak focuses on the four most influential Impressionists—-Pissarro, Monet, Renoir and Bazille—-and uses their personal histories to illuminate the sociocultural influences that informed their style of painting. He travels to different places where these artists lived, from the West Indies to Paris to the suburbs of South London, examining the ways in which the four men drew inspiration from their surroundings, breaking convention by depicting everyday encounters within ever-changing environments.

“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, this 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.
