On September 12, at 19:00, a lecture dedicated to two outstanding impressionist artists – Oscar Claude Monet and Pierre-Auguste Renoir will be held at the “Pullman Riga Old Town” hotel.
The lecture will focus on the creative path of the “rebellious” artists, the history of impressionism, the caricatures of Monet, various periods of Renoir’s artistry, and why did Renoir prefer the portrait genre, while Monet preferred landscapes?
The story of the life and work of Claude Monet in Normandy, in the fashionable resorts of Deauville and Trouville, will be told, as well as the secrets of his later works that he created in Giverny.
Both artists were linked by many years of friendship, they both studied at the Parisian atelier of Gleyre, worked in the open air, both experienced a lack of recognition, poverty and ridicule from the public. About their friendship, Renoir wrote: “I would have long since given everything up, if old Monet had not supported me.”
