In the five years leading up to World War I, groups of artists laid the foundations for the 20th-century avant-garde. Philip Rylands will deal with origins and meanings of French Cubism, Italian Futurism, and European abstraction, and with artists such as Picasso, Braque, Boccioni, Balla, Kupka, and Kandinsky. The course concludes with Jackson Pollock, whose “Abstract Expressionism” signaled the end of the abstract tradition begun with the pre-World War I avant-garde.
All presentations at 11:30 a.m.
