Romanticism & Then Some
April/May/June 2018

My new series will be 18th century British artists, moving towards 19th century artists in England, France and Spain. I’ve listed the artists and dates below.

I believe I will call the series “Romanticism & Then Some”

April 4, Gainsborough 1727-1788

April 11, Reynolds 1723-1792

April 18, Constable 1776-1837

      One month break here.

May 30, Blake 1757-1827

June 6, Turner 1775-1851

June 13, Goya 1746-1828

June 20, Gericault 1791-1824

June 27, Delacroix 1798-1863

I’ll also be including, where feasible, little tidbits on Gerome & Orientalism, Goethe & The Sublime, as well as Caspar David Friedrich, John Martin, Philipp Otto Runge, and a few others.

This is such a rich period artistically that we will be spoilt for choice, so I anticipate an amusing series that may include some vintage gossip, helpful hints and advice on how to succeed in society.

Picasso & Beyond: Art of the 20th century

After a close look at Picasso and Matisse we will go on to discuss Surrealism, the New York Schools, the European Schools and the British Schools, including Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud and David  Hockney. We will discuss the rise of women painters, the Harlem Renaissance and much more. 

The series will start on October 11, that's a Wednesday, and run for 8 weeks. 
It will be from 1 to 3, in the Campbell House Ball Room.

October 11 - Picasso – An artist of change and innovation, PP rewrote the story of art. He changed the rules and reconfigured the playing field. Love him or hate him, he’s an intensely interesting & disturbing character.

October 18, Matisse – The elegant & introverted Matisse, PP’s only rival, was all that PP was not. A colourist of extreme daring & sensitivity, he redefined the traditional palette.

October 25, Dada/Surrealism - Dali, Duchamp, Breton, Apollinaire, Man Ray, deChirico, Magritte, Carrington & all the rest - fascinated by Freud, delighted by the occult, this group created mayhem in a world already gone mad.

November 1, Blaue Reiter/Bauhaus/ Expressionism - Kandinsky, Klee, Frans Marc, Grosz, Munter, Dix, combined to create some of the most original and expressive art to surface to this day.

Nov 8, The London School – Freud, Hockney, Bacon, Aurbache, London, the swinging 60s, just imagine the excitement, the conversation, the experimentation. These brilliant artists all immerged at the same time, in the same town. Bliss.

November 15, The New York School

Pollack, Rothko, de Kooning, call them abstract expressionists, action painters, or charlatans they created work that was big, brash and American. Did you know, it was all secretly paid for by the CIA?

November 22, The Women Carr, Kahlo, O’Keeffe, Frankenthaler, Bourgeois, Schultz, Saar, Neel, Saville, Ringgold-this lecture will mention a few of the many women that have been overlooked.

November 29, Beyond The Harlem Renaissance – Wiley, Marshall, Walker, Bearden, Shonibare - there are so many fabulous artists from the African diaspora that I’ll just leave it at that and see how many others we can discuss on the day.


You must pay in full, for the entire course,at least 2 weeks in advance. 
The cost for the 8 lectures will be $250.00

Please feel free to e-mail me for registration considerations.
