At a Glance

In this series, art historian and Road Scholar expert instructor Matthew Palczynski will explore how Cubism, Pop Art and other movements grew out of their respective eras. How is an artistic masterwork best defined? What are some of the most important artworks from the past century or so? Interrogate how modernism evolved into a rich tapestry of global contemporary art. Unpack how great art at once reveals something about its maker and all of us experiencing it today. The focus of this lecture will be the birth of the American modernism movement in art. Investigate how modernism continued its development in New York after the paradigm-shifting Armory Show (1913) introduced new art to American audiences. Examine the profound work of O’Keeffe, Hopper, the Harlem Renaissance artists and others that developed in its wake.
