About the Class
Art is a visual record of human ideas and perceptions. Focusing primarily on developments in Western European art, this class explores how artistic traditions influence one another, how artists learn from and adapt these traditions, and how modern art evolved in the 19th and 20th centuries.
Perthes is the Bernard C. Watson Director of Adult Education at the Barnes. He has taught courses at the Barnes as well as the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and West Chester and Villanova Universities.
