The twentieth century was an era of great innovation, experimentation, passion, and personal expression in American art. It was a time when artistic trends were derived from such disparate influences as archaism and modernism, natural and urban life, and internationalism and localism in the unique world artists inhabited here in the United States. All of these influences were filtered through the hyper-subjective eyes of the artists themselves as new styles emerged. In this course, we will look consecutively at three touchstones of American Art, which demonstrate the vigor and diversity of expression achieved during this era: the Ashcan School, Abstract Expressionism, and the art of Isamu Noguchi. Three sessions.
Judy Pomeranz, art critic and advisor, has written and lectured extensively on art history topics. She has delivered lectures at the Smithsonian Institution and has given tours of museum exhibitions around the country. She is also the published author of two novels and many short stories.
You do not need to prepare anything for the first class session.
