Join Kerrin Meis on a virtual tour of St. Petersburg, Moscow, and the Cities of the Golden Ring to study their architecture, moving from medieval times to the Italian contributions of the 18th century, from 11th-century icons to Malevich and beyond. We’ll include the paintings, sculpture, and artifacts of the Kremlin, the incomparable Hermitage, the Pushkin Gallery, the Russian Museum and the Tretyakov Gallery. A coda to the course will be a look at the thousands of works of avant-garde art smuggled out of Russia by Norman Dodge, now at Rutgers University.
 
Kerrin Meis taught art history at SFSU for ten years and now lectures for the College of Marin and Dominican University and leads study tours in Europe. Her Book Passage classes have been big favorites for years.

Class: Kerrin Meis- Modernism, Avante-Garde Art 1900-1940

10/10/2014 12:00 pm

Modernism had its roots in the late 19th century when a major debate was the role of art in society. Schoenberg declared that nothing done for a purpose was art, whereas Picasso claimed that art was a weapon with which to attack the enemy. Beginning with the Austrian Secession and concluding with Dada and the beginnings of Surrealism, we study the ideas behind Fauvism, German Expressionism Cubism, Italian Futurism, the Russian Avant-Garde, de Stijl and Die Neue Sachlichkeit.

Sicily, the meeting place of Africa and Europe in the Mediterranean was occupied by the Greeks, the Romans, the Arabs, and the Normans. All left marvelous monuments: Temples in Segesta and Agrigento, the Greco-Roman theatre in Taormina and fascinating mosaics of Villa Romana Casale, and the Capella Palatina in Palermo as well as its churches and the great cathedral at Monreale. We visit Noto and Siracusa for spectacular Baroque architecture and Reggio Calabria to view the Riace Bronzes.
Kerrin Meis recommends Lonely Planet's SICILY.
