THE EVOLUTION OF PAINTING:
A name synonymous with artistic beauty and mystery!
January 11 to March 29
Wednesday Mornings at 10am on Zoom
Vermeer, View of Delft
Vermeer, Girl with a Red Hat
A Sample Session
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.
In this series we will explore the extraordinary uniqueness of Vermeer.
Even amongst his contemporaries Vermeer is strangely different than the popular artists of his period. For over a hundred years Vermeer’s paintings were credited to other artists in order to make them more marketable.
Only in the late 19th century was Vermeer rediscovered and understood for the profound genius of his paintings.
It has long been a dream of mine to spend time copying Vermeer’s paintings. In this semester of The Evolution of Painting we will do just that!
I hope you will join me.
