About the Event

The French Connection:

Fairfield Porter, Edward Vuillard and Pierre Bonnard

Wednesday Mornings 10 am to 12 noon on Zoom

September 14 – December 14, 2022 (No Class November 23)

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.

Fairfield Porter was a 20th century American painter and art critic. Porter was a representational painter during a period of complete transformation of the Wester Art World.

While New York was replacing Paris as the art capital of the world and Abstract painting was rebelling against the history of oil painting, Fairfield Porter painted quiet, gentle scenes of his personal domestic world. He was inspired in this pursuit by the artists he most admired: Edward Vuillard and Pierre Bonnard.

In this series we will examine the work of Fairfield Porter, Vuillard and Bonnard. Paul will make copies of all three artists.
