The Impressionists BBC

Based on archive letters, records and interviews from the time, the series records the lives of the artists who were to transform the art world. A tale of poverty and of a struggle for recognition, set against a backdrop of war and revolution.

At the heart is the brotherhood of artists, bonded by enduring friendships and their commitment to a new type of art. The story is led by the paintings. Some of the world’s most memorable art works are recreated, following the same techniques that the artists used at the time……Wiki

The Impressionist, a three part series by the BBC is good basic TV with education of the arts and art history in mind.
