F110 Fall 2018 Artists in Exile: Expressions of Loss and Hope
Thursdays, 11:50–1:15, Sept. 20–Oct. 11
Four sessions
Instructor: Christopher With

This was the title of a 2017 exhibition at the Yale Art Gallery which focused on 19th and 20th century painters. Exile, willing or unwilling, was both a physical and mental disruption but also could be a spur to renewed artistic insight. This series of four lectures will expand the Yale time frame to include one artist working in the 17th century. By focusing on four selected artists as case studies, the series will examine the mental and physical impacts of exile; the reasons behind the exile—personal, political, cultural, or other; efforts to reestablish careers and relationships; significance of the exile period; the personal and professional costs; and whether it was a catalyst for creativity or technical innovation.
  • Sept. 20: Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio
  • Sept. 27: Paul Gauguin
  • Oct. 4: George Grosz
  • Oct. 11: Elizabeth Catlett
Christopher With has worked in the education department of the National Gallery of Art and has a degree in German history from the University of California, Los Angeles.
