Art in Context: Toulouse Lautrec's Montmartre // Picasso's Barcelona (SERIES PACKAGE)

WEDNESDAYS | February 14*, 21, 28* & March 7, 14 & 21.
11 AM - 12 PM | Norma Kershaw Auditorium, *Fluor Gallery
Presented by Annalee Andres, art historian and founder of Art in Context
This lecture series will explore two artists working at the turn of the century: Henri Toulouse Lautrec and Pablo Picasso and the work that they produced during a transformational time in their careers and the way in which their chosen cities informed their work. Toulouse Lautrec will move to the gritty neighborhood of Montmatre in 1885 and make it his home. His work will come to celebrate this marginal neighborhood, known for its fringe bohemian culture. He will befriend the actors, performers, and sex workers who lived there. Likewise Picasso will move to Barcelona, as an art student in the early part of his career. There his work will transform from Academic exercises to avant-garde investigations setting him up for his explosive career in Paris in the early 20th century.
