The History of Modernity: From Bars to Stars and Stripes

31 May 2011 – 28 June 2011

With everyday subject matters, innovative painterly styles, and a new approach to spatial relationships, the 1860s heralded the beginnings of modernity and a new role for the modern artist.

In this provocative and illuminating series of lectures we’ll deconstruct the work of 19th century artists such as Courbet and Manet – considered to be the first modernist painter – through to the works of Rothko and De Kooning in 1950s America.
