Spanning the turbulent twentieth century from the Cubist masterpieces of Picasso to the Pop of Warhol, this six-week day course will examine the ways in which art was transformed in the prelude to and aftermath of two World Wars. Participants learn to interpret and understand art in the context of a period that saw the birth of what many people now regard as ‘modern’ art. Led by Consultant Lecturer Dr James Hicks, a complimentary guided visit to Tate Modern is included.
