Dr. Parme Giuntini, Director of Art History at Otis College of Art and Design, presents this series on Modern Art. She will discuss the movements and ideas that changed our perspectives on art and art making. She will begin with Realism in France, around 1850, and finish with Abstract Expressionism in New York City in the mid-20th Century.

Dr. Giuntini presents the final lecture on Realism in art. She discusses modernity, popular culture, and the influence of the World Fairs, a modern public spectacle. We complete the study of Realism with Edouard Manet, who shattered the cherished conventions of Academic art with his controversial paintings.
