Love and Lust in the Arts
 
 Art Appreciation
This course will present an historical perspective on the lives and times of personalities who achieved high artistic merit. We will examine the dynamics that contributed to their successes, and in some cases, the uproar that their works precipitated. Each artistic personality is unique in motivation and desire. We will uncover some of their working methodology and examine the times in which they created. Archival images and films will enrich the lectures.
