3-4 November 2017
Impressionism has long occupied a central place in the canon of art history. That place now seems to be in question, however. New transnational approaches to nineteenth-century art history have troubled the perpetuation of Francocentric histories. As the field’s attention has turned to places outside France—Britain, the United States, Australia, and beyond—Impressionism has been pushed to the margins. “Writing Impressionism Into and Out of Art History, 1874 to Today” seeks to scrutinize Impressionism’s past historiography and trace its possible future in transnational art histories, with particular attention to new directions and questions through which to interrogate Impressionism.
