Art History Series: Luxury and the 18th Century French Interior
This series meets 10 a.m. to Noon on Mondays, March 3, 10, 17.
The ostentatious display of artworks in and around the home in the 18th century was a means by which French collectors exhibited wealth, intellect, and taste. Interiors of the elite were lively works of art, filled with objects ranging in media.
Join Lilit Sadoyan in a three-part course focusing on how style, design and ornament developed under the influence of royal and private collectors in concert with the extraordinary creative virtuosity and talent of artists, designers, and craftsmen.
Participants will explore the ways in which paintings, sculpture, and decorative arts were experienced and used in the 18th-century home during the times of Louis XIV, Louis XV, and Louis XVI.
