Expressionism Comes To Germany

Instructor: Professor Hank Steffens

Germany was the place where Expressionism took root. German artists developed their own versions of Expressionist art as a result of the exchange of new ideas towards art in both France and Germany. These artists, like Ludwig Kirchner and Emil Nolde, confronted all aspects of modern life and painted their reactions and feelings in new ways. They wanted to ensure that their viewers experienced the intensity of their interpretations and concerns.

Art Appreciation

America's Changing Realism

Instructor: Professor Hank Steffens

Sign painting, landscape painting, and portrait painting were the core of early American realist painting. 'The New Eden' provided limitless subjects for the landscape painter. The American Revolution provided pressing demands for new portraits. After the Civil War, new trends in painting appeared. Thomas Eakins, a Philadelphia artist and important teacher, introduced new techniques and new approaches to both landscape painting and portraits. His landscapes focused on urban life and his portraits had psychological meaning as well as superficial likeness. (image: "Mrs. Thomas Eakins, T.

Winslow Homer

Instructor: Professor Hank Steffens

Winslow Homer was taught lithography and engraving as a apprentice before the Civil War. During the War, he became a successful magazine and newspaper illustrator. After the War he taught himself water color and oil painting. He remained true to Realist painting, but chose his own subjects and painted them with his own unique style. His scenes of the American outdoors and seascapes made him one of America’s most important painters.

Art Appreciation

Georgia O'Keeffe

Instructor: Professor Hank Steffens

O’Keeffe’s unique vision and artistic innovations made her one of the most important American artists of the 20th century. Her early art and reputation were shaped both by Arthur Stieglitz and by her friendships with young artists attempting modern, non-objective art. It was only after O’Keeffe moved to New Mexico from NYC that she succeeded in creating her own version of herself and her art. This talk considers the whole range of her artistic career and the friendships which contributed to it.
