May 2 | Interiors: Intimate Spaces

$350.00

This seminar is now FULL. If you would like to be put on a waiting list, please email us.

While artists and audiences often have turned to the canvas to explore the countryside and wild places, while such works of art have often captured our attention, another tradition had persisted alongside the landscape. There are the painting of the rooms where our day-to-day lives unfolds, paintings filled with the stuff of life. What is that stuff, and why is it important to paint it?

In this seminar we turn our attention to the interiors painted by artists including Vilhelm Hammershøi, Jean-Édouard Vuillard, Mary Cassatt, Helen Galloway McNicoll, and Henri Matisse as we explore the nature and the significance of the intimate space.

Duration: 2 hours per session

Cost: C$350 plus 13% HST (approx. US$273 plus 13% HST)
