Monet to Malevich: pioneers of modern art
Summer school course with the National Art School
Masters of modern art from the Hermitage sees modern masterpieces from the unparalleled collections of the State Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg, Russian, travel exclusively to the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
Monet to Malevich: pioneers of modern art is a new immersive five-day course, led by NAS lecturer Dr Molly Duggins with guest speakers, which will examine key art movements represented in the exhibition and the great agents of modernity in painting – from Monet’s liberation of colour through the radical innovations of Picasso and Matisse, via the lyrical revolution of Kandinsky and all the way to the ‘full stop’ of Malevich’s Black Square.
Across the week, you’ll enjoy exclusive exhibition viewings, lectures and conversations, with guest appearances by curators, conservators and artists. The course includes a season pass to the exhibition and is open to students of all levels of experience and interest in art history.
