Sunday Seminar: Elisabeth Vigee-Lebrun

Sunday, 11/1/2020
2:30PM-4:30PM  
Virtual Art Appreciation
CAM member: $10; Non-member: $15

With Luc Travers.
Elizabeth Vigee-Lebrun (1755-1842) was one of the most renowned portrait painters of Paris in the 1780s, including being the personal portrait painter of the queen of France, Marie Antoinette. Then the French Revolution sent France--and Elizabeth's life--into turmoil, but that was only the beginning of a 50-year, international art adventure. In this class we'll look closely at what made her portraits so distinctive, and what made her one of the most sought-after portraitists of her time.

Sunday Seminar: Evelyn de Morgan with Luc Travers

Sunday, 11/15/2020
2:30PM-4:00PM  
Virtual Art Appreciation
CAM member: $10; Non-member: $15
While the art world was starting to turn towards Impressionism and Modernism, Evelyn de Morgan (1855-1919) found inspiration in the paintings of 15th century Florence, including Botticelli. While she joined other Pre-Raphaelite artists in looking at the past for inspiration, she used that style to convey her very modern ideas. In this class, we'll look at how she used ancient stories, like those of Helen, Cassandra, and Queen Eleanor, to communicate her Feminist ideas.
