The sweeping societal and technological changes of the nineteenth century had a profound impact on visual art. The early decades of the century witnessed the domination of two seemingly incompatible styles of painting -- Neoclassicism and Romanticism; by mid century these traditions were being challenged by the upstart Realists and Impressionists, who ushered in the beginning of modern art. This two-part course will explore major paintings by French artists working during this period, moving through such diverse styles as the Neoclassicism of David, the Romanticism of Delacroix and Gericault, the Realism of Courbet and Manet, the Impressionism of Degas and Renoir, and the Post Impressionism of Seurat and Van Gogh. This course will encompass a classroom component as well as a visit to the galleries of the Dallas Museum of Art and its special exhibition, The Mind's Eye: Masterworks on Paper, dedicated to drawings, prints, watercolors, and other works on paper by these same artists.
Museum admission included in registration fee.
