April 13  - June 15, 2022

In this online series Paul DuSold explores how and why great paintings affect us by making copies of master paintings. 

By watching the recreation of a master painting from start to finish the viewer sees how the qualities of color, shape, light and space engage the imagination as the painting goes from a blank canvas to a finished masterpiece. By seeing the painting develop, the viewer experiences the painting with much greater understanding!

As the painting develops, Paul describes every step of his experience walking in the footsteps of the artist who created the original. Context of social and aesthetic history will also be discussed.

Participants are allowed to ask questions at the end of each session.

This Semester in The Evolution of Painting we will look and copy paintings from four exhibitions currently on view in Philadelphia, New York and Boston:

The New York exhibitions are of portrait artist Hans Holbein at the Morgan Library and American artist Winslow Homer at the Metropolitan Museum.

Hans Holbein ( 1497- 1543 ) was court portrait painter to Henry VIII of England. He is considered one of the greatest portrait artists of the Northern Renaissance. Winslow Homer (1836 – 1910 ) is a 19th century American artist. He began his career as an illustrator and went on to create important iconic American paintings

The Wayne Thiebaud exhibit is at the Brandywine Museum

Wayne Thiebaud (1920 – 2021) is a 20th century American painter known for his vividly colored Pop art imagery. Many of his works are also Iconic of American culture and materialism.

The Turner exhibition is at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts

J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851 ) is an English Romantic era painter of extraordinary impact. Turner’s works are emblematic of the Romantics movements heroic ideas of drama, turbulence and emotion as well as the conflict between the Industrial Revolution and Nature.
