Sculpture Through the Ages: Part 2
Free for Members
We will return to our exploration of sculpture, beginning with the High Renaissance and one of the major artists of the period, Michelangelo (David). In the Baroque period, we will look at Benvenuto Cellini and Bernini, who created many of Rome’s magnificent fountains. From here, we will continue on to the sculptures of Versailles. Moving on to the Modern period, we will discuss the works of Degas (Little Dancer) and Rodin (The Thinker). We will finish with the works of Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore, Canada’s Bill Reid, Louise Bourgeois, Jeff Koons (Puppy), and the beautiful blown glass works of Dale Chihuly and his Studio and others. Come and join us for these unique sessions as we explore the art of sculpture and its artists.
