PICTURE MAKERS, GREAT ART, PAST AND PRESENT
This short art history course will examine a selection of exceptional pictures created over the centuries. Most people are familiar with iconic images like the Mona Lisa and many recognize a painting by Picasso . However, have you ever actually looked carefully at them? What historical forces helped shape these pictures, how do they function as art, and what can they tell us about the human experience? We will examine some famous paintings you will recognize and many others that may surprise you. We will focus on a different time period or topic each week, ranging from ancient cave art to Modernism. It will include sections on the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, Impressionism, and more.
These presentations focus on the work and lives of individual artists, such as Caravaggio, Van Gogh, Emily Carr, etc. Who are they, what did they do, and why is their art relevant today?
