For thousands of years sculptures were created using time-honored techniques and materials. However, beginning in the late 19th century, artists began to redefine the boundaries of three-dimensional sculptural forms and to experiment with new materials and techniques to create them. We will explore and discuss this shift in both the creation and the conceptual underpinnings of three-dimensional sculptural art, focusing on the work of Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Mario Merz, and others.
This session is led by Jane Royal.
