Art History – July

At our meeting on Monday 6th August we will watch a DVD that explains how art in France took a dramatic turn following the French Revolution of 1789.  We will explore the work of French artists including Jacques-Louis David – whose art appeared on the barricades and in the streets – and also Delacroix, Ingres and Theodore Gericault who was a pioneer of Romanticism in French painting.  The film will be followed by discussion and contributions from the group.
