Contemporary Painting: Focus on Figuration
$70 non-member ($35 members)Mondays, May 10, 17, 24
This three-part series looks at contemporary painting with a focus on figuration.  Beginning with the traditions established by the French Academy, we’ll examine the way modern painters such as Cezanne, Matisse, Paula Modersohn-Becker, Rodin and others have stepped away from the academic to find new and modern ways of presenting the figure. Our discussion will then move onto contemporary artists who continue to work in and push the boundaries of the figurative tradition: John Currin, Jenny Saville, and Elizabeth Peyton. The series will close with an interview and discussion with the Philadelphia painter, Michael Bartmann, who will share his thoughts and personal inquiries into contemporary painting today. There will be plenty of time for audience questions and discussion.
