David describes the evolution of Impressionism from its experimental beginnings in the Gleyre studio in Paris in 1862 with Monet and his friends Sisley, Renoir, Bazille, Pissarro - to its later stage (and beyond) of explosive color, loose brushwork, complementary color vivid sunshine and sensual delight. David discusses and demonstrates Monet's later methods as a mid-career Impressionist at Giverny and his evolution into expressionism with his carefully developed and cultivated waterlily garden as his inspiration.

David demonstrates van Gogh's drawing techniques as a preparation for his paintings, reveals his connections to Dutch landscape painting and Impressionist color, and shows how he employs these ideas with expressive, moving gestures in the landscape of van Gogh.
