WHO IS THE GREATEST ARTIST OF THE 20th CENTURY?
The rapid evolution of Modernist art -which saw movements as varied as Fauvism, Cubism, Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism, and Pop Art- produced a wide array of towering artistic talents. For some critics, artists like Pablo Picasso, Georgia O’Keefe, Marcel Duchamp, Jackson Pollack, and Andy Warhol defined the 20th Century; for others, the greatest achievements of Modernism have yet to be fully appreciated, with artists such as Francis Bacon, Hilma af Klint, Jack Whitten, Robert Mapplethorpe, or Lee Krasner being seen as increasingly important. This course will explore a wide range of artistic achievements (both well-known and barely-known) in an effort to address a possibly unanswerable question: Who is the greatest 20th Century artist?
