Artscapades presents Rococo: From Amorous Images to Swagger Portraits

September 24, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Location: Lamb Room

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

In Rococo, ArtScapades discusses this unique period in art, characterized by soft colors and curvy lines, depicting scenes of love, nature, amorous encounters, light-hearted entertainment, and youth.  In looking at this lighter side of art, ArtScapades will focus on the lives and works of Watteau, Fragonard, Boucher, Gainsborough, and Reynolds.

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.
