The Evolution of Painting: Daniel Garber and Arthur B. Carles
Time & Location
About the Event
Starting January 6, Paul explores the world of Philadelphia painting in the first half of the 20th century by focusing on the paintings of Daniel Garber and Arthur B. Carles. Garber was a Pennsylvania Impressionist and Carles was one of the first important artists in America to explore Modernism through abstract painting. Both artists attended the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. Both artists studied in Paris. They were in many ways similar and fundamentally opposed! It’s a fascinating story of one artistic revolution being replaced by another. Paul will copy paintings by both Garber and Carles in order to understand their aesthetic intentions and rivalry.
