Art and the City
- Where:Seminar Room One, Sackler Centre
10 WEEK SHORT COURSE: Many celebrated artists have been closely associated with major European and American cities such as Paris, Rome, London, Berlin, and New York. They have lived and worked in these cities and many of them have made the city itself a special subject of their work.
Explore the vibrant relationship between art and artists and the metropolis from the Renaissance to the present day. Examine case studies like Paris and Impressionism, Rome and the High Renaissance, Berlin and the inter-war period, New York and the Abstract Expressionists as well as considering the development of the art world and artist communities in cities such as London and Paris and Barcelona. Major figures will be considered as well as critics, dealers, patrons and lesser-known artists, designers and architects.
