The German Gerhard Richter, the Englishman David Hockney, and the Americans Edward Ruscha, Louise Nevelson, Helen Frankenthaler, and Frank Gehry are artists in different media and intentions. The common denominator is that in their time they redirected the ideas and processes of painting (Richter, Hockney, Ruischa and Frankenthaler), sculpture (Nevelson) and architecture (Gehry). Their innovations took their disciplines into other understandings of color, form, space, and texture while invigorating their intentions with new life. This PowerPoint lecture series will outline their contribution to art while providing an in-depth analysis of their styles.

Before the 20th century, it had been the fate of women artists, however successful in their own time, to be ignored by art historians. In this series of PowerPoint lectures, we will present images that make clear the originality and energy women have brought to western painting. We will highlight painters such as Giulia Lama, the first woman known to draw and study the male nude from a live model; Marietta Robusti, the daughter of Tintoretto who was known in her time as “La Tintoretta”; the great still-life painters Maria Van Oosterwyck and Rachel Ruysch; and Lavinia Fontana, the first female painter in western Europe to reach the same level of professional acclaim as her male contemporaries. These lectures will bring many more female artists out of the shadows.

Before the 20th century, it had been the fate of women artists, however successful in their own time, to be ignored by art historians. In this series of PowerPoint lectures, we will present images that make clear the originality and energy women have brought to western painting. We will highlight painters such as Giulia Lama, the first woman known to draw and study the male nude from a live model; Marietta Robusti, the daughter of Tintoretto who was known in her time as “La Tintoretta”; the great still-life painters Maria Van Oosterwyck and Rachel Ruysch; and Lavinia Fontana, the first female painter in western Europe to reach the same level of professional acclaim as her male contemporaries. These lectures will bring many more female artists out of the shadows.

Few artists in the last century equal the Spanish master Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) in range of creativity, depth of imagination, and technical virtuosity. From his early academic training under his father through the transitional romanticism of the Rose and Blue periods, to the intellectual revolution of Cubism, Picasso’s creative genius redefined the intentions of pictorial space and changed the history of art. This series of lectures will examine and evaluate his life, loves, and the continuing influence his art has had on the contemporary world.

CLASS DESCRIPTION

The German Gerhard Richter, the Englishman David Hockney, and the Americans Edward Ruscha, Louise Nevelson, Helen Frankenthaler, and Frank Gehry are artists in different media and intentions. The common denominator is that in their time they redirected the ideas and processes of painting (Richter, Hockney, Ruischa and Frankenthaler), sculpture (Nevelson) and architecture (Gehry). Their innovations took their disciplines into other understandings of color, form, space, and texture while invigorating their intentions with new life. This PowerPoint lecture series will outline their contribution to art while providing an in-depth analysis of their styles.

The Art Nouveau Movement (French for “new art”) was an international style of art, architecture, and design that began in the late 1900s and peaked in popularity at the beginning of the 20th century (1880-1914). The style was characterized by highly stylized, flowing, curvilinear designs which were nature inspired. Alphonse Mucha: The Spirit of Art Nouveau Alphonse Mucha (1860-1939) was a Czech painter and decorative artist who became known for his distinctive romantic style. His works frequently featured beautiful young women in flowing, neoclassical robes, surrounded by lush flowers that formed halos around their heads. His paintings, posters, and advertisements are still popular today. “The Mucha Style” includes designs for jewelry, carpets, wallpaper, and theatre sets.

Europe in the 17th and 18th centuries moved away from ecclesiastical dominance in the arts toward the rationalism of the Enlightenment. Secular painting began to dominate the taste of the period – such as in portraiture, landscape, still-life, and scenes of daily activities. This age of exuberant optimism and confidence, rational thought, global exploration, and experiments in science were all reflected in the paintings of the time. This series of PowerPoint lectures will illustrate the history of this period through the paintings of Italy, France, and Holland.

CLASS DESCRIPTION

The Industrial Revolution created a sense that anything can be mass-produced, from flatware to buildings, from fine art to applied art. During the final years of the 19th century, the production of painting, sculpture, and applied arts filled public and private places from floor to ceiling. Objets d’art – factory-made and delivered – filled the homes of the new middle-class. The movement was called Art Nouveau, and its philosophy of craftsmanship and exoticism was the final style of the 19th century. This series of PowerPoint lectures will lay out the innovations of this movement and its consequences on the 20th century.

This three-session PowerPoint lecture program focuses on two representative artists in each of three countries: the Mexican surrealists Siqueiros and Tamayo, the Russian Abstractionists Kandinsky and Lissitzky, and the Chinese Postmodernists Ai WeiWei and Shi Jinsong. Each has an extraordinary biography, reflected in their art. With the Mexicans it is the political turmoil of the country, for the Russians the pure reason/beauty of abstract form dipped in color and animated by rapid lines, and with the Chinese, the cultural responsibility of projecting an ancient culture’s metamorphosis into the modern world.

The style was characterized by highly stylized, flowing, curvilinear designs which were nature inspired. Gustav Klimt: Art Nouveau Visionary Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) was an Austrian Symbolist and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession Movement. He is noted for his paintings and murals. Klimt’s primary subject was the female body, and his works are marked by a frank eroticism. Among the artists of the Vienna Secession, Klimt was the most influenced by Japanese art and its methods.
