Spring 2019 Art Humanities Mini-Core: Modern Art/Modern Vision: Monet, Picasso, Warhol

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.
