Over time, artists have continued to find innovative ways to create credible illusions of the real world--on flat, two-dimensional surfaces. Chief among them are the illusions of distance, of volume and of motion. Trace the history of these artistic illusions from the Renaissance to modern times: from Alberti’s “Veil” to Dali's atmospheric landscapes; from Leonardo’s “Virgin of the Rocks” to Jason Sapan’s holograms; and from Botticelli’s “Birth of Venus” to Chris Milk’s virtual realities. This lecture/discussion will enhance your artistic eye as both a viewer and artist.
Fee: $39.00
