Art Appreciation: John Singer Sargent: At Once Modern and Classic

As Tate Britain puts on a show about Sargent and fashion, it is the perfect occasion to discover the life and career of this extraordinary painter. His art situates him in a paradoxical position, modern by some features, and classical based on some others. American, he lived in Italy, in France and mainly in England, where he became a sought-after portrait painter. But there is much more to Sargent than his portraits of wealthy patrons. We will also discover some of his impressionist paintings and his watercolours. In portraits as in landscapes, he always comes across as a brilliant painter.

Art Appreciation: Scottish Art 1750 - 1914

This course explores fascinating artworks made by Scottish artists from c. 1750 to 1914. We explore ways in which Scottish artists responded to European styles (for example in History Painting and Portraiture in the 18c and Japan in the late 19c) at the same time as making distinctively Scottish work. The course covers oil painting, watercolours, photography, design and some architecture. We also look at some multi-media work, including Margaret Macdonald’s murals in gesso, paint and applied beads. We look at artistic groups and examine ways in which members influenced one another as well as responding to European art: examples include the Glasgow Boys and the Scottish Colourists.
