THE LYMAN ALLYN ART MUSEUM CONTINUES ART HISTORY FOR ALL COURSES
New London – The Lyman Allyn Art Museum is proud to announce the continuation of its lifelong adult learning program, Art History For All… This course, beginning March 2, is entitled, “Face to Face: How Great Artists Transformed the Art of the Portrait.”
Bob Potter will lead this 5-week class at the Lyman Allyn. Through a wide range of visual images, historical context, and profiles of artists from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, this course will explore the artists, the people they painted and photographed, and the changing historical events and artistic movements that influenced society and the art of portraiture over the past 300 years. The class will also include recommended reading lists, relevant films, online sources of information, and handouts for discussion covering the artists from each period being investigated.
