Art History Lecture
Classical Subjects in Art: Everyone Copied the Greeks
From the Romans to the Renaissance and more recent artists, it seems as if everyone copied the Greeks. Botticelli used a modest Aphrodite in his famous Birth of Venus, and Bernini's Apollo and Daphne is a tour-de-force in marble carving. The Surrealists were especially fond of classical subjects and we will see examples by Man Ray, Magritte, Dali, and deChirico, all of whom had their own "take" on famous classical subjects. We will look at such recent examples as Andy Warhol, the Harry Potter movies, and artists using computer-generated imagery.
Here is a brief bio of Professor Kate Ogden:
Kate Ogden is a Professor of Art History at Stockton University, where she has taught since 1991. She has given talks for Pine Shores since 1992.
At Stockton she specializes in American and European art of the 19th and 20th centuries as well as the History of Photography. In recent years she has team-taught a course on Japanese Art & Culture and is looking forward to her second class trip to Japan this coming May (2023).
