ArtScapades presents Neoclassicism: From Excessive to Classical

October 22, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Location: Lamb Room

ArtScapades returns to New Canaan Library with a new series, The Road to Impressionism.

In Neoclassicism, ArtScapades moves beyond the excesses of Rococo art, and gives the history of factors that brought Neoclassicism into favor including the rise of scientific thinking and the social changes brought about by the French Revolution.  This lecture covers Vien, Mengs, Kauffman, David and Ingres.

PLEASE REGISTER

Robin Hoffman and Jodi Stiffelman began ArtScapades in 2009 after teaching art appreciation for ten years in the New Canaan public school system.  This is their eleventh series of lectures at New Canaan Library.
