Spot on Impression, 30 March 2008
Author: Eaglegrafix from United States

I'll say first that I loved art of any kind but paintings of the masters are the most enjoyable and the Impressionist period and the Impressionist artists are the cream of the crop for me. It does not end there. Monet is one of three at the very pinnacle.

I found this mini series to be refreshingly accurate and pleasant to watch as well. By dramatizing the life of some of the French painters that created the many various facets of the impressionist movement. Although several who were also present in Paris at the same time are not brought into this piece (such as Pizarro) we do get a good look at the close relationships some had.

What I really enjoyed was the lighting and composition of the scenes - many set in such a way that they seem to be living pieces of art. It was easy to understand how light and shadow and color was more interesting to these artists than form and pose of earlier masters.

If you love art, especially the late 1800's to 1900's you will enjoy this BBC series.
