2.3.1 Art History Book Group
This course is a blend of an art history course with slides and a book discussion group. Excerpts from six books about artists will be provided (though you are certainly welcome to read the entire book.) Information and visuals relating to the book will be shown to spark discussion. Books include Girl with a Pearl Earring about Vermeer (Tracy Chevalier), Luncheon of the Boating Party about Renoir (Susan Vreeland), The Yellow House about Van Gogh and Gauguin (Martin Gayford), Strapless about John Singer Sargent (Deborah Davis), The Art Forger about Degas and art forgery (B.A. Shapiro), and I Always Loved You (Robin Oliviera) about Mary Cassatt. NEW!
