Who doesn't love the Impressionists? Even people who know little about art recognize their names and see their exhibits. But 135 years ago, painters such as Monet, Renoir, Pissarro, and Degas created a sensation-a bona fide French scandal-at the painting salons because they dared to paint color, form, and light differently. They dared to see differently. Considered rebels, rascals, and radicals, the Impressionists questioned the standard practices of painting, challenged the Academy's authority over those practices, criticized the tastes of galleries and salons, and revolutionized how and what to paint. This documentary offers insight into the artistic world's mistrust of the Impressionists and chronicles the movement's 30-year struggle for legitimacy-a cause championed by art dealer Paul Durant-Ruel. The origins of modern art can be found in the brushstrokes of the Impressionists.
