“Realism in the Age of Impressionism”

Although rarely acknowledged, Realism persisted well into the age of Impressionism. A generation of artists spearheaded a revival of the Realist practices that had dominated at mid-century, advocating slowness in technique, subject matter, and artistic beholding. Join Dr. Marnin Young, as he introduces the later Realists—Jules Bastien-Lepage, Gustave Caillebotte, Jean-François Raffaëlli, and others—and explores their shared concern with painting and slow time, one that is all but forgotten today, having been eclipsed by the ideals of Impressionism. Young is Associate Professor of Art History at Stern College for Women, Yeshiva University. His book Realism in the Age of Impressionism: Painting and the Politics of Time will be available for purchase and signing after the lecture.

The lecture is free and begins at 6.30 pm at the Dahesh Museum of Art Gift Shop located at 145 Sixth Avenue, on the corner of Dominick Street, one block south of Spring Street.
