Delve deeper into the new exhibition Modern Antiquity: Picasso, de Chirico, Léger, and Picabia in the Presence of Antique, with a gallery course that explores the influence of ancient art among avant-garde artists.
On December 3, Ancient Art on the Modern Mind: 20th-Century Reinventions of Antiquity will look closely at the exhibition Modern Antiquity: Picasso, de Chirico, Léger, and Picabia in the Presence of the Antique, which juxtaposes classical art with the innovative work of avant-garde artists who re-appropriated the classical past. Exhibition co-curator Jens Daehner and John Tain of the Getty Research Institute present the history of the exhibition, after which they lead a discussion in the galleries about the 20th century artists and the classical works of art that inspired them.
The course takes place at the Getty Villa in the meeting rooms and museum galleries from 1:00–4:00 p.m. The course fee is $35, $28 for students and seniors. Seats are limited; to make a reservation, please call (310) 440-7300 or visit www.getty.edu.
