Seminar Description

This seminar will examine the art of Constable and Turner, renowned 19th-century British painters who showed the western world just how lyrical, dramatic, and romantic landscape painting could be. In addition to helping define the artistic spirit of their age and place, we will examine the way both artists had an enormous influence on the European and American modernists who succeeded them.

One session. E – $85, L – $93.5
