Class Details

This class explores European and international painting and sculpture of the last quarter of the nineteenth-century, particularly the work of artists once famous in their day but whose reputations collapsed with the rise of Impressionism and Modernism. Once dismissed as trivializing, sensationalizing, politically suspect, kitsch, and simply “bad”– much of this art has attracted new attention and enthusiasm in recent year. Focus on aesthetic theory, narrative, cinema, and — most of all — viewer experience. Artists include Gérôme, Bouguereau, Alma-Tadema, and many others.
