Great Artists, History, and Cultural Influence

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic Artists are a part of history. Brueghel, Rubens, Gainsborough, Monet, Degas, Picasso, Kahlo, and Hooper each reflect their time and place. What world events influenced Vermeer? Who backed Manet and bought Sargent? Why did the American Cassatt stay in Paris and the French Gauguin decamp to Polynesia? From Caravaggio to Kahlo, this study group will explore art and artists as representatives of their culture, analyzing the isms of Romanticism, Realism, Impressionism, and Modernism. Each week, two artists representing an art period will be selected. Our resource material will include short videos from major art museums, plus supplementary articles. Each week we will survey a different art period, the history surrounding it, and the milieu of the artists portraying it. Whether you already delight in art or want to begin learning about it, join this expedition.
