Art History with Gary Faigin - Bad Paintings By Great Artists
BIMA is pleased to partner with Kitsap Regional Library on its popular LIBRARY U program with a slide presentation in the BIMA Auditorium by Gary Faigin. Gary is the Artistic Director and Co-Founder of Gage Academy of Art, an artist, instructor, educator, and author of The Artists Complete Guide to Facial Expression.
About this session:
Nobody's perfect! While the skill and judgement of artists who have survived the test of time is unquestionable, even the greatest artists can have an off day, or take on a project that is ill-suited for their talents. We'll look at ten less-than-stellar productions by painters like Tintore, Manet, and Sargent, and talk about where they seem to have gone off course, and why. Perhaps we can even learn a lesson or two to apply to our own undertakings, as to the pitfalls than can sabotage even the best of us.
Note: Not everyone agrees as to what a bad painting is! We'll talk about that too.
