Two artists: two paintings – Autumn 2017

van goghEach week we will study in depth two works of art. The works will be by different artists who may have been contemporaries, possibly rivals, or simply members of a movement. Alternatively they may be separated by hundreds of years. The works themselves may be famous or obscure. They may share common themes or subject matter, compositional approaches, or some external link. You will have no prior knowledge of the works and will therefore explore the possible connections between the two works and their creators from scratch. You will have access to primary sources, other works by the artists, and critical analysis to help you discuss and formulate ideas. This study in microcosm will enable you to find out about the art world these artists worked in and how their work fits into the broader trend of art history.
