Online Art Discussion: Plaster Casts & New Ways of Seeing the Past
Time: 06:00 PM
Join Katherine Schwab on Wednesday, May 5th, at 6 PM for her lecture "Online Art Discussion: Plaster Casts & New Ways of Seeing the Past".
The long tradition of studying and drawing plaster cast reproductions of sculptures for artistic training is exemplified by artists such as Matisse, Rodin, Picasso, and Paul Manship, who studied plaster casts of ancient Greek sculpture while pioneering modernism. In conjunction with the exhibition Paul Manship: Ancient Made Modern, Fairfield University professor of art history, Katherine Schwab provides context for the importance of plaster casts as vehicles for learning.
