Life is a constant learning curve with many topics, as well as experiences and art is no exception. We can all appreciate a painting by merely looking at it. What is not known, by mere sight, however, are the plethora of styles, mediums and compositions. After all art appreciation centers around the ability to view art throughout history, focusing on the various cultures and artists, and how art developed in specific periods.
Like all things the more we know, the better we can assess, and therefore, make informed decisions. This not only gives us a foundation of knowledge, but will also help us when purchasing art. To understand art without understanding the culture, the use of materials, and a sense of beauty in a specific form, we are only achieving a limited view of a painting. We need to know the type of paint used and what care is required to optimize its life. How do we ensure the authenticity of an art piece? How do we guarantee the qualities of an original work of art as opposed to a reproduction? How can we establish provenance?
A seminar is offered to cover all aspects of art in order to best inform you on this complex subject.
