Lecture 4, Part 2: The Education of Artists
Lecture 4, Part 1: The Education of Artists: Becoming a Master from the 15th to 21st Centuries
Fair warning: This lecture was a little rushed at the end. I tried to fit more in that was reasonable. Despite that, I think the discussion is followable — the comments by those there are particularly worth following. I'll do a future lecture that gives the "present" the time it deserves. Think of this as a sketch.
This lecture — exploring how artists trained from the 19th century to the present — is part of a series given by Micah Christensen (PhD, University College London) in collaboration with Anthonys Fine Art, the Beaux Arts Academy, and the Institute of Classical Art and Architecture.
