It was most valuable to look at well-known paintings by Cézanne and Van Gogh with an eye to how Provence affected and changed them. To someone familiar with most of the paintings but not schooled in technique or art history, it was a revelation to see the very different ways that each painter responded to the sunlit world around him. Pamela Morton made a clear case for each of those masters’ discoveries, selecting features of the paintings that I could readily see (once she pointed them out!) and providing succinct, salient information on the artists' lives and the innovations now called Post-Impressionist. Thank you also for the opportunity to watch this program again in the ensuing week.
The presentation was extremely interesting and informative. I learned quite a bit about Cezanne and Van Gogh, even though I was already fairly knowledgeable about them. Pamela is a great presenter and the time went by extremely quickly!
I learned a great deal about both painters. Pamela's lecture was engaging and interesting. I loved the paintings she chose as well as the thoughtful comparisons between them. This seminar was wonderful! I highly recommend it to anyone interested in art, art history, and Provence.

It was very interesting to compare such different painters but it was a pity that the sound was defective.
