Nineteenth century Paris was dubbed the capital of the arts. Artists from across the globe travelled to the capital for opportunities to train, exhibit and connect to the artistic milieu. This course will consider ways in which artists working in Paris including Manet, Morisot and Monet forged pioneering paintings of the city. Conversely, others such as Courbet, Cézanne and Gauguin found motifs beyond the city, developing innovative paintings which reveal alternatives to urban themes. Exploring Realist, Impressionist and Symbolist paintings, this course will examine how the emergence of modern art took on a variety of guises and reveal some of the complex issues involved in the development of modern art.
