  • History and Tea

    Join historian Dan Hartman for tea, coffee and history. Through informative lectures and discussions in an informal setting, we will explore the great artists of the Western World. Come to all discussions or choose the topics that most interest you. Pablo Ruiz Picasso was regarded as one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. He is known for co-founding the Cubist movement, the invention of constructed sculpture, the co-invention of collage, and for the wide variety of styles that he helped develop and explore. Salvador Dalí was a skilled draftsman, best known for the striking and bizarre images in his work. Dalí's expansive artistic repertoire included film, sculpture, and photography, at times in collaboration with a range of artists in a variety of media. Vincent Van Gogh was a Dutch post-impressionist painter who is among the most famous and influential figures in the history of Western art. In just over a decade he created about 2,100 artworks, including around 860 oil paintings, most of which date from the last two years of his life. Eugène DelacroixFrom the outset of his career Delacroix was considered the leader of the French Romantic school. As a painter and muralist, Delacroix's use of expressive brushstrokes and his study of the optical effects of color profoundly shaped the work of the Impressionists, while his passion for the exotic inspired the artists of the Symbolist movement.
