At a Glance

Through the ages, art and war have been entwined as human beings reflect on the harsh realities of warfare through paintings, sculpture, drawings and more. Join art historian Matthew Palczynski as he explores the complex relationship between art and war from a variety of perspectives, including art made in direct response to war (such as Picasso’s “Guernia”) to art swept up in its dreadful currents.

Learning through Art teaches us our history's path by marking the past with the present under a timeless unity. ThelMita

I’m considering a Zoom lecture series with Mathew on American Art this summer. He makes art come alive. A good teacher makes all the difference.

Don't forget this organization is trying to sell trips. However, they offer some really wonderful, insightful, helpful information on beautiful places to visit, and many of the lectures are free. I want to go on ALL of their trips!

Presenter is well-versed in both history and art and combines the two in an informative, engaging program.

Tune in for a thumbnail sketch of many artists' interpretations of the historical wars they lived through by their art. All on Zoom from the comfort of your living room foxhole!

Today was my 1st time watching an educational lecture with Road Scholar. I'm really impressed. It started on time, the person who introduced the speaker was engaging, the material - history of art and war - was absolutely fascinating! The speaker was so comfortable with the audience and his expertise in the subjects was clearly evident. I learned so much, not just about art and war but it filled in the gaps of times in history I wasn't familiar with. I'm definitely going to sign up for more Road Scholar offerings!

Matt is extremely knowledgeable about art history and presents his subject well. I will always sign up for one of his lectures.
