  4. ArtScapades

    April 18, 2018, 6:30 PM - 8:15 PM @ Full Auditorium

    Change Begins: A Look at Cézanne and Matisse ArtScapades returns to the Norwalk Public Library with Change Begins which will delve into the life and work of Paul Cézanne, who, while classified as a Post-Impressionist, is considered the Father of Modern Art. And then we will move further into Modern Art with a look at the life and work of Henri Matisse. This lecture gives the history of factors that brought Modern Art into being including the growing rejection of the academic tradition in art, and the move towards abstraction. The goal of ArtScapades is that you will develop the means to critique a work of art while learning art history and art appreciation. You will come away with both an understanding of Cézanne and Matisse and their works, as well as the tools to effectively explore galleries and museums. Robin Hoffman and Jodi Stiffelman, of ArtScapades, began teaching art appreciation in 1998.
