Writer and narrator

Louise Govier is MLA Museums Clore Leadership Fellow, and from April 2010, Visitor Experience Manager at Mottisfont Abbey (National Trust). Formerly a university lecturer in art history, and head of the Adult Learning team at the National Gallery, Dr Govier is also the author of One Hundred Great Paintings (2010) and Hogarth to Turner: British Painting (2010), as well as numerous DVDs.

Impressionist painting is now so popular and familiar that we struggle to see it as shocking or avant-garde, yet it originally caused uproar and controversy which continued into the 20th century.

This film explains why experimental 19th-century developments in French painting caused such a stir, as artists adopted a radically modern approach in their subjects, compositions and techniques, and challenged the academic conventions of the day.

Introducing an extraordinary period of art history, this DVD features well-loved paintings by Monet, Seurat, Cézanne, Renoir and Degas and included location footage in France and interviews with curatorial and conservation experts at the National Gallery, London.
