    Saturday, November 13, 2010, 11:15 am

    Although they were mocked as the "Ashcan School" and the "apostles of ugliness," Robert Henri and his followers believed that American art should come out of American experience, and created painting that, in Henri's words, "expresses the spirit of the people today."

    Saturday, November 6, 2010, 11:15 am

    Cubism was born in France from the partnership of Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso, but its influence reached around the globe in the decades that followed, creating an explosion of innovation and creativity in visual art that was embodied in the work of Robert and Sonia Delaunay, František Kupka, Marcel Duchamp, Kazimir Malevich, and other early twentieth-century masters.

    A Climb Up the Mountain with Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque

    Saturday, October 16, 2010, 11:15 am

    Georges Braque described his partnership with Pablo Picasso as “like two mountain climbers tied together.” In one of the most famous collaborations in the history of art, Braque and Picasso invented Cubism, one of the most influential movements of the twentieth century. Of those years, Braque said, “Picasso and I said things to one another that no one will ever say again ... things that would be incomprehensible to others, but that gave us a great joy.”

    World Wars and Savage Beasts: French and German Expressionism

    Saturday, October 9, 2010, 11:15 am

    Early French critics nicknamed Henri Matisse and his group of painters Les Fauves—the Wild Beasts—a criticism of their wild use of color and other aspects of their radical new painting style. While Matisse and his friends used expressive lines and riotous color to celebrate the joys of life, German painters simultaneously used them to express the uneasiness around them as their nation headed for war.

    Renaissance to Romanticism

    Saturday, September 25, 2010, 11:15 am

    From the early fourteenth century to the mid nineteenth century, we follow the path of art from the Renaissance, with Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, to the Baroque era, with the work of Peter Paul Rubens and Diego Velázquez, to the frivolous and risqué Rococo, and, finally, to Romanticism, with its dramatic scenes of death, terror, and passion.
