FROM CAN-CAN TO SOUP CAN: THE STORY OF MODERN ART FROM PARIS 1850 - NEW YORK 1960s.
Venue: St Michael's Church Hall, Bramhall
LINDA COLLINS BA Hons. MA, Dip Francais Wednesday 01 March 2017

10.30am to 3pm. Coffee served at 10am

We will look at the course of modern art through the title period, observing the people, the art and where it led. Lecture 1 PARIS: lively city of cabarets, can-can girls and artistic bohemia as seen through the paintings of the Impressionists, Post-Impressionists and beyond.

Lecture 2 FIVE MAJOR ART GROUPS:

Ecole de Paris, Ecole Francais, Purism, Dadaism and Surrealism. As we leave Paris at the end of this session, World War Two is approaching and many of our artists depart for New York in search of patrons to buy their paintings.

Lecture 3 NEW YORK:

Peggy Guggenheim was the catalyst that brought together the French and their Surrealist techniques with the New York school of artists. This collision produced a new art form, Abstract Expressionism, later followed by Pop Art.
