Intro to isms of the early 20th century

During the early Modern Period (1905-1915) Europe was characterized by an astonishing variety of 'isms' styles & movements. We will look at the new ways in which artists tried to express how they saw the world around them, and how the quick succession of 'isms' led to a completely new type of art.

About the Event

This lecture is part of a course which offers an intensive introduction to the history of European Art and covers paintings, sculpture, architecture, and decorative art. Sessions concentrate on looking and understanding the works within the context they were made and comparing them to how they differ from works made in different time periods throughout Europe and eventually the world. Lessons provide you with an overview of many of the most important movements in art, its key artists, and reference to its historical context.

Note that due to the extent of the  periods covered in this class, there is not always time to go into great depth, and students must expect to come out with a general  understanding of Art History.
