Tish Robinson, renowned expert on French art and culture, brings to life the inspiration behind the iconic paintings of the Impressionist Masters: Monet, Manet and Renoir. Their paintings all feature familiar images of beautiful young women bathed in sunlight and shadow and depicted in public and private settings in Paris and the surrounding countryside. Who were these women? What was their relationship with the artists? Where lies the truth behind these almost-mythical creatures? Their fascinating and often poignant tales as models, mistresses, and muses will be brought to life, illustrated by these legendary artists.

The event will take place Saturday April 22, 2017 from 1pm-3pm at the Hoffman estates Village Hall (1900 Hassell Road). There is no charge for attending this event, but a voluntary donation of non-perishable food items or a monetary donation benefiting local food pantries is appreciated.
