L117 Fall 2018 Art History and Paintings through An Artist’s Eyes: The Musée d’Orsay in Paris
Mondays, 11:50–1:15, Sept. 17–Sept. 24
Instructor: Adrienne Wyman Kralick
Planning a trip to Paris can be expensive and overwhelming. There is just so much to see. Often it is hard to know where to start. What are the “must see” museums and masterpieces? Instructor Adrienne Wyman has done the research for you. In this class, you can sit back, relax, and take a virtual tour of the Musée d’Orsay in Paris without ever leaving your seat. PowerPoint presentations will walk you through the museum. You’ll travel through time exploring paintings in chronological order, unveiling why they were groundbreaking or important for their time and how they affected the next generation.
Adrienne Wyman Kralick adds a unique “behind-the-easel” perspective to art history, as an accomplished portrait painter and exhibiting artist herself. Currently, she teaches oil painting at Smithsonian Studio Arts in Washington, DC. She received her BFA from Auburn University, studying graphic design and art history. Postgraduate studies include copying works of art in the museum of the Art Institute of Chicago, traveling the world visiting museums and artistic venues, vast reading, and independent research on the subject.
