on

UK / BBC One / 3×50 minute episodes / Broadcast 30 April – 14 May 2006

Producers/Directors: Mary Downes, Tim Dunn / Writers: Sarah Woods (episodes 1 and 3), Colin Swash (episode 2) / Executive Producer: Kim Thomas

The Impressionists – in which Claude Monet (Julian Glover) looks back on his part in the remarkable story of the Impressionist movement – is based on archive letters, records and interviews from the time. It is a tale of poverty and a struggle for recognition, set against a backdrop of war and revolution.

But at the heart is a brotherhood of artists – bound by enduring friendships and a commitment to a new type of art – which survived rows, rivalries, duels and crises. For more details see the episode guide here.
