Feb. 14: Streets of Paris: Impressionist City of Light

Presented by Phoenix Art Museum docent Chip Jackson

A group of artists called the Impressionists began painting during the vast rebuilding of Paris. They wanted to show the actual urban conditions in Paris from 1854 to 1927. While the fine arts of the time concentrated on portraits of the wealthy, these artists focused on true-to-life scenes in the changing streets of Paris. You will be introduced to six prominent artists who shared not only their friendship but also their desire to show the transformation of Paris through their art.

About the presenter: Chip Jackson originally hails from Virginia. After completing architechtual school, he entered the Air Force for six years. He practiced architecture in Los Angeles for 36 years and retired to Chandler in 2008. He joined the Phoenix Art Musuem’s docent program in 2015.
