Raphael Hynes discusses when Modern life becomes the subject for the artist.
Talk 3: The Post-Impressionists, April 1st, 11am
Raphael Hynes discusses when the artist no longer feels obliged to depict a “realistic” representation of the world but instead creates a personal vision in which colour and brush work are used as a means of expression.
Talk 4: Matisse, Fauvism and Expressionism, April 8th, 10am*
Raphael Hynes discusses when the flat surface of the painting becomes all important as the artist turns away from depicting the illusion of three dimensional space and concentrates instead on the expression of emotions. *Please note the earlier time, as there is a Children’s Easter Workshop at 11am
Talk 5: Picasso, Cubism and the road to Abstraction, April 15th, 11am
Raphael Hynes discusses when the painting becomes its own reality.
