Friends and Rivals in the Arts
Terryl Lawrence

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: Art History is more than a fascinating journey through 'isms' or periods of art. It is also enriched by the relationships between artists. This lecture series will explore the intimate associations, important connections, admirations, inspirations and harmonies between artists and their works. We will also examine noteworthy artist break-ups and betrayals that transpired in some of their lives. These occurrences have often resulted in astonishing and seminal creativity which have enriched our visual world.

1. Edouard Manet & Edgar Degas: Their friendship ended in oil.
2. Pissarro, Sisley & Caillebotte: First impressions are of great value.
3. Jasper Johns & Edvard Munch: Johns began to mine Munch's work for inspiration. He studied his innovative technique and signature theme of love, loss, sex, and death.
4. Richard Diebenkorn & Henri Matisse: Two geniuses of design and chroma.
5. Coco Chanel & Elsa Schiaparelli: Two fabulous women who were definitely not "kissing cousins."
6. Kerry James Marshall & Horace Pippen: Centuries apart but soulmates.
7. Clifford Still and his muse Vincent van Gogh: What did this Abstract Expressionist learn from van Gogh?
8. Lucien Freud & Francis Bacon: The contrast between two very different painters that fed their friendship.
