Spanning the turbulent twentieth century from the Cubist masterpieces of Picasso and the paintings by Bacon and Freud to the innovative works of Twombly and Rauschenberg, this course examines the ways in which art was transformed in the prelude to and aftermath of the two World Wars. Participants learn in depth about key artists of that period and how their practice have influenced the way we think about art today. The course is led by Dr James Hicks, Consultant Lecturer, Sotheby’s Institute of Art.
