Beginning with the Hudson River Group and the American sublime, we look in depth at the Ashcan School of Painters in New York at the beginning of the twentieth century. We then concentrate on featured artists including Georgia O’Keeffe and Edward Hopper, and also examine the art of the 1930s, featuring the American Regionalists exemplified by Grant Wood’s iconic ‘American Gothic’. The course will include the photography of such luminaries as Walker Evans and Lee Miller, and the blockbuster films of the 1930s such as ‘Grand Hotel’ and ‘It Happened One Night’.
