New Perspectives on French Art

April 23, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

A Dialogues seminar

Join us for a morning immersed in the world of French art. Scholars Kathryn Desplanque and Alexis Clark will discuss French art in society and offer new perspectives on how we study and engage with art beyond just appreciating its aesthetic qualities. From the creation of an “art world” in Paris in the 18th and 19th centuries, to the importation of Monet in America in the postwar era, we will learn about French art embedded in new and interesting sociological and historical contexts. This seminar will deepen our understanding of familiar works and give us insights into the people and ideas behind their propagation.


The Changing Makeup of the Parisian Art World (and Art Market) in the 18th and 19th Centuries
