    • Realism to surrealism: European art and culture 1848-1936

      Course, Lecture / symposium, Member

Over three 12-week terms, this course traverses a century of major art movements whose ‘isms’ have become part of the everyday lexicon – Impressionism, post-Impressionism, symbolism, cubism, modernism, futurism, German expressionism and surrealism – all distinct artistic styles developed by artists freed from the shackles of representation by the invention of photography and responding to the social, political and artistic challenges of their time.

It begins in 1848 – a year that saw many revolutions in Europe that ultimately resulted in the unification of Germany and Italy into single nations, as well as the formation of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood in London.

Following on from 2012’s Absolutism to enlightenment: European art and culture 1665-1765 and 2013’s Revolution to romanticism: European art and culture c1750–1850, this year’s course concludes a three-year investigation of over 250 years of European art and culture.

In 2014, with so much fascinating ground to cover, each term has been increased to 12 lectures, with a host of well-known lecturers from previous years and introducing a new spectrum of experts appearing in the course for the first time.

Please note, Thursday subscriptions are now booked out. Single session bookings still available.
