About the Event

The Jerusalem Studio School: A legacy of Perceptual Painting

Wednesday Mornings, 10 am to 12 noon-ish, on Zoom

September 13 through December 13 (No class November 22)

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.

The Jerusalem Studio School was begun in 1998 by painter Israel Hershberg. The JSS mission is to train painters in the tradition of perceptual painting; painting based on the poetry of seeing – the perception of sight. This method is in contrast to painting based on ideas, narratives or socio-political self-expression. The roots of this methodology connect directly to the teaching of 20th century American painters Charles Hawthorne, Edwin Dickinson and Lennart Anderson.

In this series of classes I will copy paintings by faculty and students of the JSS including, Yael Scalia, Sigal Tsabari, Elana Hagler, David Baird and Yuval Yosifov. All of these artists have agreed to join us online when their painting is being copied.

It will be a fascinating conversation about the evolution of representational painting in our time!
