From Realism to Surrealism

Thursday 10.15- 12.15

Covering the period from 1840 to 1940, this 9 week course aims to explore the most rapidly changing period in the history of western art, and to guide students through a succession of ‘isms’ which can be bewildering. By showing how each movement developed from what went before and how artists reacted to the momentous changes going on around them in society, the course aims to help students understand what can seem confusing works of art and, by understanding them better, to appreciate and enjoy them more.
No previous knowledge of art history is necessary to enjoy this class.
