Look­ing for some­thing to do on those cold Jan­u­ary nights?  I will be giv­ing a series of four  lec­tures on Art His­tory on Wednes­day evenings (time and exact dates tba).  Come on out and enjoy lis­ten­ing to me mis­pro­nounce lots of French and Ger­man words!

War on Art: A visual tour of the effects of war upon art in Ancient Greece, Rev­o­lu­tion­ary France, Wil­helmite Ger­many and the United States.

Ancient Greece – Athens of the High Clas­si­cal period gave us the per­fect form; from the Acrop­o­lis to the ideal human shape, Athe­ni­ans saw the whole world as pos­si­ble per­fec­tion.  After their humil­i­a­tion in the Pelo­pon­nesian War they saw a very dif­fer­ent world.  This evening will look at how their art reflected these changes.

Rev­o­lu­tion­ary France – From the wispy images of Rococo to the clas­sic columns of Neo­clas­si­cism, the years of Rev­o­lu­tion in France brought changes not just to the style of art, but also to the role of art in a soci­ety.  This evening will look at these changes and how they opened the door for even more.

Wil­helmite Ger­many – No Euro­pean states saw a wider vari­ety of artis­tic expres­sion dur­ing the first twenty-five years of the 20th cen­tury than those that spoke Ger­man.  Both Berlin and Vienna took the lead in widely var­ied artis­tic move­ments.  This evening’s class will look at the Ger­man Expres­sion­ists of Vienna before the Great War, and the artis­tic reac­tions to defeat in post-war Berlin.

The United States – From the roar­ing of the 20’s to the crash­ing of the 30’s, Amer­i­can art was as volatile as it’s econ­omy in the years lead­ing into the Sec­ond World War.  When it emerged from the war an unques­tioned super­power, Amer­i­can artists seemed unsure how to depict a nation they barely recognized.

  1. Hi my name is Denise and I just wanted to drop you a quick note here instead of call­ing you. I dis­cov­ered your Upcom­ing Lec­ture Series | davelovell.net page and noticed you could have a lot more vis­i­tors. I have found that the key to run­ning a pop­u­lar web­site is mak­ing sure the vis­i­tors you are get­ting are inter­ested in your niche. There is a com­pany that you can get tar­geted traf­fic from and they let you try the ser­vice for free for 7 days. I man­aged to get over 300 tar­geted vis­i­tors to day to my web­site.
