During the period 1850-1930 Paris was to become the centre of the artistic world – not just for the creative fervour it generated, but for the life style the city offered. Life in Paris was reported internationally as being wild, permissive and cheap as well as tolerant of painters on its streets. The focus of these talks will be the artists and writers who flocked to Paris during this period and the ways in which they colonised and responded to a city undergoing physical, political and social change faster than any other European capital at the time – all from a practicing painter’s point of view. 
 
PART 1: IMRESSIONISTS’ PARIS (1850-1880) 
This talk will explore the origins of Impressionism in late nineteenth century Paris. The boulevards, ateliers, studios, cafes and cabarets of Monet, Renoir, Degas and many others will be examined through their paintings, and their life styles considered through the writings of their friends and critics alike. The new ways of recording light and colour in this constantly changing city and the responses of the public and critics to this ‘revolutionary’ band of artists will be considered in the infamous ‘City of Light.’ 
 
PART 2: BOHEMIAN PARIS (1880-1914) - date to follow 
PART 3: CAFÉ SOCIETY (1918-1930) - date to follow
