Emmanuelle Namiech, Director of Acquisitions and Co-productions at Granada International commented: “Beautiful to watch, The Impressionists is a wonderfully crafted mini-series with a fascinating subject matter. We believed from the early treatment stage that the series would be an international hit and are delighted with the response from broadcasters. We have enjoyed working with BBC Productions and look forward to co-operating with them on future projects.”
The Impressionists is a stunning drama bringing vividly to life the French Impressionist's struggle for recognition in the face of massive hostility from the art world of the late 19th Century.
