In the 1860s in Paris, a group of young artists gathered at Café Guerbois in the heart of the Batignolles quarter of Paris.
Every Thursday, they came together.
They were rebels.
The rest of the art world scoffed at them. The establishment laughed at them.
Their work was ridiculed. Belittled. Misunderstood.
Their family members? Embarrassed by them.
They came together to share advice, learn from one another, and encourage and support one another.
Cezanne. Monet. Renoir.
Their leader, Edouard Manet, was loud.
The art they created would come to be known as Impressionism. Today, 150 years later, their canvases hang in some of the most prestigious museums across the globe.
