History of Art module 1 |1880-1940 | 21 April to 30 June 2020

Module 1

 Becoming Modern: 1880-1940

Bloomsbury artists Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant were pivotal players in 20th century British Art, and at the vanguard of an emergent Modernism.

Their lives were as complex as the period itself. This fascinating 10-week course puts their art in context, and looks at contemporary artists and movements both in the UK and beyond to Europe.

Spanning a period of roughly 1880 to 1940 we will look at the art of the Bloomsbury Group, but also work produced by other British and European artists, including the Post-Impressionists, Fauves, Symbolists, Cubists, expressionists and Surrealists. 

This course will introduce you to some of the 20th Centuries most intriguing artists and movements. It will explore the historical and sociological setting, and immerse students in the critical discourse and debates surrounding the work.

The class is open to all, and no previous experience of art history is necessary. It takes runs from 10am to 1pm on Tuesdays from 21 April to 30 June, with no class taking place on 26 May, during half term week.

Although there is no formal homework, students will be given a reading and exhibition list. There will also be an opportunity to research and present to other students at the end of the course (although this is entirely voluntary).
