About the Class

Modernist painters Amedeo Modigliani, Jules Pascin, and Chaim Soutine were Jewish expatriates living in Paris in the early 1900s. They shared a fascination with the studio and café life of Montmartre and Montparnasse and earned a reputation as les peintres maudits ("cursed painters"). The Barnes collection houses incredible masterpieces by these artists in numbers rarely seen anywhere in the world. In this course, we will investigate their intersecting lives and their contributions to modern art.

Capacity: 18
