Gallery Tour: Crossroads
Saturday, March 30, 2013 |10:00 AM – 11:30 AM
The rise of the modern, industrial world in nineteenth-century Europe inspired artists to explore new subjects and approaches to painting to reveal the sometimes unpleasant realities of modern life. In short, artists found themselves at a crossroads between old and new. Jean-Léon Gérôme, John Everett Millais and Ferdinand Hodler, celebrated artists from this period, each emphasize the complexity of nineteenth century life.
