25 . Vincent van Gogh
24. Paul Cézanne
23. Mary Cassatt
Best known for her portrayal of domestic scenes as well as the intimate bond between a mother and child, she loved to use bright colors and an unabashed realistic style.
She was a leading artist in the Impressionist movement in the latter 1800s and known as one of “les trois grande dames” of Impressionism (along with Berthe Morisot and Marie Bracquemond).
In this episode, we talk about Mary Cassatt.
22. Berthe Morisot
Known as one of "les trois grandes dames" of Impressionism, she is famous for painting scenes from domestic life: family, children, ladies, beautiful gardens and flowers in watercolors and oils.
In this episode, we're going to talk about Berthe Morisot, one of the most prominent artists of the Impressionist era!
21. Pierre-Auguste Renoir
He believed that art should celebrate life, beauty and the joy of each moment. Known for his soft, feathery brush strokes in his colorful paintings, he primarily depicted feminine beauty. But he also painted still lifes, as well as rural and domestic scenes.
In this episode, we're going to talk about one of the leading artists of the Impressionist movement, Pierre-Auguste Renoir.
20. Claude Monet
He was compelled to capture the constantly changing and atmosphere altering light. The way it cast its beauty on land and water — the way it changed the shades and tones of color in the tiniest of degrees.
He and his “rebel” friends would rock the art establishment of the time and forever revolutionize the world of art!
In this episode, we'll talk about Claude Monet, the “Father of Impressionism”.
Full of Wonder
Not only is this fun and educational, Alisha Gratehouse and her daughter are amazing! We joined their Masterpiece Society classes and have LOVED them. Then we started listening to the podcast on our way places and we love learning about the great artists. When we get home we quickly look up the painting that they talk about and feel like we’re specialists on it. It is so fun to see their other work and to point it out excitedly! It’s so fun to find out that the great artists were people like us with ups, downs, and in-betweens. Thanks! :D
Kids and I Love It
I have a 3, 6 and 9 year old. The kids and I love the podcast. They request it. We enjoy looking the the website and art after each pod. Thank you for this gift of a podcast.
Great supplement to artist study
I’ve only listened to one episode so far (Turner), but have subscribed and will be using this podcast as part of our AmblesideOnline (Charlotte Mason style) curriculum from here on out. Very pleased so far.
