The Story of ArtRichmond and Hillcroft Adult and Community College
This course takes the form of a series of lively and informative illustrated lectures.
Term one begins in the late Middle Ages and early Renaissance and takes us through the 17th and 18th centuries, via the Baroque and Rococo periods (including Caravaggio, Rubens, Rembrandt and Vermeer) to the Enlightenment and Romantic period (Hogarth, Gainsborough and Reynolds to Delacroix, Constable and Turner)
Term two begins in France in the 19th-century and introduces Realism (e.g. Courbet, Bonheur, Manet), Impressionism (e.g. Monet, Renoir, Pissarro) Post-Impressionism (e.g. Cezanne, Toulouse-Lautrec, van Gogh) and carry on through all the major �isms� ending in the art of the mid-twentieth-century.
Term three continues our journey through art of the twentieth century, looking at Pop Art (eg. Hamilton, Lichtenstein, Warhol), Land Art, Body and Performance art (eg. Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Abramovic, Gilbert & George), Minimalism (eg. Andre, Judd, Kelly) and the return to painting in the 1980s (eg. Caulfield, Kiefer). We then 'complete' the story with art of our own century (eg. Hirst, Emin, Perry) etc
