100 Great Artists of the 20th Century
July 18 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Saturday, repeating until July 25, 2020
The 20th century opened with the legacies of Impressionism, Post-Impressionism, and all of the eras and movements that preceded them. Our look at the great artists of the 20th century will touch upon all of the major art movements of that century—in the European, American, and non-Western arenas.Beginning with Paul Cézanne and Claude Monet—who took the modern era in quite different directions—we’ll examine those artists who became part of the continuum that is art history, by making significant contributions to what would become the art of a new century. We’ll look at the key figures of Modernism and Postmodernism, which will include such artists as Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Wassily Kandinsky, Marcel Duchamp, Joan Miró, Salvador Dali, Egon Schiele, Edward Hopper, Charles Demuth, Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Anselm Kiefer, and Jaspar Johns—among many others.We’ll also be exploring amazing artists from the Ashcan School (formally known as The New York Realists), the Fantastic Naifs (naive and outsider artists), the Mexican Muralist School, and the Harlem Renaissance. In addition, we’ll be examining the major achievements of women in the arts during the 20th Century—who struggled throughout that era for recognition.
Join us on this fascinating 5-week online journey!
