The Impressionists

The French Impressionists' struggle for recognition in the face of massive hostility from the 19th Century art world is brought vividly to life in this sumptuous drama. The delicacy of Monet's water lilies and Degas' exquisite ballerinas contrast sharply with the real story which involved huge controversy, poverty, scandal and rivalries between a group of like-minded artists. Based on original letters and interviews with Claude Monet (here played by Julian Glover).
