What is a masterpiece? Defined centuries ago as the work a craftsman submitted to achieve the rank of master, the term has expanded to mean an artist’s most outstanding work. This seminar explores six modern masterpieces by Edouard Manet, Paul Gauguin, Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall, Maya Lin, and Kerry James Marshall, examining their significance, impact, and relevance to past and present times.
Six sessions. E – $210, R – $231
