Inspired by the exhibition Matisse/Diebenkorn, this series of talks examines artistic influence and aesthetic affinities between pairs of artists. Whether separated by time and place or through close personal relationships, this class highlights the ways in which artists gain inspiration from one another. Curators and scholars share stories, observations, and insights with participants as they draw connections between artworks and invite closer inspection of pieces both familiar and new. Participants will spend time in the galleries as part of this class.
