In the 1920s, contemporary themes and a highly stylized approach to design better suited to the machine age began replacing the monumental allegorical figures and academic style typical of American murals of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. This seminar examines the modern American murals of the 1920s, 30s, and 40s, including both non-government-funded murals and those produced under New Deal programs designed to assist struggling artists during the Great Depression.
Three sessions. E - $160, L - $176
