Artistic Rivalries and Reputations: Renaissance to Modern
- Where:Seminar Room 1
10 WEEK COURSE: Explore the stories behind some of the most famous artistic rivalries – including Leonardo and Michaelangelo, Manet and Monet, Matisse and Picasso, Magritte and Dalí, and Hockney and Freud – and how they have helped build and demolish reputations from the Early Renaissance onwards.
The course will consider why competition was fostered by patrons and academies, and show how fame, personal envy, the clash between the old and the new, and even the media-manufactured reputations of today have transformed art through conflict and emulation.
10 weeks, Fridays, 26 September – 5 December (half term: 31 October)
