This exciting course will look at ways modern artists changed attitudes to the challenge between man and nature. During the 18th and 19th centuries, it was the moon that was the focus of many landscape artists, especially the romantics. However, as the 19th century began to close, many painters such as the Norwegian Edvard Munch, concentrated on the power of the sun. It was the age of x-rays and other scientific discoveries that brought this change in focus towards the brightness of the new century.
From the Impressionism of Pissarro in the late 19th century, through Avant-Garde views of the mid 20th century to Agnes Denes in the 21st century this will be of interest to all interested in art and gardens
