Join an art historian to learn more about portraits and self-portraits and three iconic artists whose oeuvre is shaped by this genre of artistic expression. In this 3-part series, we will focus on three of the most important artists of the twentieth century: Edvard Munch (1863-1944 ), Frida Kahlo (1907-1954), and Francis Bacon (1909-1992), whose works have become canonic images of the art world. We will look at one artist per session. Participants can join for one seminar or for the full series.

This series will present a comprehensive but accessible introduction to the oeuvre of each artist, explaining why the genre of portraiture and self-portraiture has become an important foundation of their art.

In this seminar, we will look closely at Edvard Munch, the Norwegian artist best known for his painting, “The Scream”. As we learn about his life and the evolution of his career, we will go beyond autobiographical information in order to further analyze the impact his body of work has on contemporary viewers. We will question the role of portraiture as a genre in art history, but also in our daily lives, opening up a space to consider why painted portraits are still relevant today and how these can impact us, the viewers.

Led by an expert on modern and contemporary art and portraiture, Dr. Timea Andrea Lelik, this interactive seminar will explore the contribution of this genre to art history, but also its impact on the viewers. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an increased appreciation and novel interpretations of the most iconic portraits and self-portraits of the twentieth century and how these have forever changed the history of art.

This conversation is part of a three-part series on portraiture with Timea Andrea Lelik. Each session is designed as a stand-alone seminar as well as part of a three-week series.
