20th CENTURY ARTIST
This course will explore the life and work of these three internationally recognized Spanish artists within the wider framework of the European art movements at the turn of the 20th Century.
Students will learn about the life and works of Picasso, Dali and Miró. These artists will be studied first as young students in Madrid in the Residencia de Estudiantes and then as avant-garde young painters wrestling between acceptance and rejection of their artistic works.
Students will learn about the influence French art and French artists had on their personal and artistic lives, while gaining an understanding of the tumultuous sociopolitical and artistic context of Europe in the first half of the 20th Century. They will explore the general influences shared amongst the three of them, but they will also learn about each of the artist´s particular style.
