Philosophers, theorists, art historians and even artists themselves have attempted to define art but its definition continues to elude us. With the evolving nature of art and the increasing complexity of art forms and practices in contemporary culture, it has become even more challenging to say what art is with any definitiveness. This talk will also discuss the purposes and function of art and whether these have changed over the ages

In their disregard of academic convention, their incorporation of new ideas and technology, their revolutionary approach to visualising the world, the Impressionists embodied what Charles Baudelaire calls "The Painter of Modern Life". This talk will discuss ways in which the avant-garde Impressionist artists sought to visualise the idea of modern in art, including innovative methods of painting, new found artistic sensibilities, and the depiction of the contemporary. See how Monet, Renoir, Degas and other Impressionist artists helped to revolutionise the art of painting.
