Art Across the Centuries: Part II
The first class in this 5 part series will introduce you to artists from Germany, Spain, England and Italy. The second class will discuss the Impressionists from America. Then, we will celebrate “New York City through Art” as we consider the work of the Ashcan School painters and other important realists. The fourth class, Spanish Art of the Golden Age is an exciting survey from El Greco to Velazquez, adding Goya, who speaks more to modernity than to his own 18th century. Finally, follow Henry Matisse and his contribution to modern art as well as his friendship and rivalry with Pablo Picasso, which resulted in a fascinating and often productive engagement.
Instructor: Joan Lipton, Ph.D is an experienced art historian, lecturer and dedicated scholar with the desire to promote the study of art and culture in her audiences. She earned a Master’s degree in art history from Hunter College, and a PhD in art history, from the City University of New York Graduate Center.
