THE EVOLUTION OF PAINTING:

Four Important Contemporary Artists
Anne Gale, Catherine Kehoe, Carolyn Pyfrom and Susan Jane Walp

 
April 26 to June 14, 8 sessions
Wednesday Mornings at 10am on Zoom

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 work of four important contemporary American painters. These four have very different ways of painting representationally. They paint traditional subjects of stil-life, portrait and figures in very untraditional ways. Their work is wonderful proof that the art of painting is continually, compellingly meaningful to the human imagination — even in an age dominated by technology!
