Modern Art/Modern Vision: Monet, Picasso, Warhol | Professor Noam Elcott CC’00, Chair of Art Humanities
The history of modern art is also a history of modern vision: new art made in response to new ways of seeing the world. Physiological optics, the science of signs (semiotics), and technological media are the lynchpins of contemporary vision; but their origins can be traced back to 19th century Impressionism, early 20th century Cubism, and post-WWII Pop art.
Over a series of three evenings with Professor Noam Elcott CC’00, we will delve into the three great representatives of these movements — Monet, Picasso, and Warhol — and gain new sets of eyes with which to see our past and our present.
