This wonderful river often referred to as “The River of Light” was a major influence on the development of Impressionism.
Carole has written a total of three lectures following the course of the river; a travelogue with the Impressionists at its core.
Starting at the Estuary, as this is where it all began with Open Air Painting, she then moves on tracking the rise to recognition of this new wave of artists, introducing little known facts about them.
