Modernity and Realism Pt 1: Becoming Modern

Dr. Parme Giuntini, Director of Art History at Otis College of Art and Design, presents this series on Modern Art. She will discuss the movements and ideas that changed our perspectives on art and art making. She will begin with Realism in France, around 1850, and finish with Abstract Expressionism in New York City in the mid-20th Century.

This chapter introduces the viewer to more than simply looking at paintings and sculpture. Dr. Giuntini will discuss what it actually means to be Modern, why it happened in Europe, what were the current ideas and philosophies, and how that influenced the people making art.
