Art in Paris: 1900-1940 *NEW*

Between 1900 and 1940, Paris drew artists from all over the world and became a center for creative activity. Known as the School of Paris, these included both French and émigré artists such as Picasso, Soutine, Miro, Chagall, Giacometti, Modigliani, and many other important artists working in Paris. We will also discuss major movements of art and the artists’ relationship with the historical and social background of their time. At each session, we will view works by three or four artists and learn interesting facts about their lives, the characteristics of their art, and their contributions to art history.
