WICA Humanities Series–Art Talks with Rebecca Albiani
May 15, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm$15
WICA presents art historian Rebecca Albiani in a dynamic and fascinating three-part lecture series on Seattle Art Museum’s upcoming exhibition featuring works by the Pre-Raphaelites, designer William Morris, and members of the Arts & Crafts Movement. The next in the series is The Arts and Crafts Movement: Form, Function, and Influence, May 15 | 11am at Whidbey Island Center for the Arts.
The “Radical Victorians,” Pre-Raphaelites and members of the Arts & Crafts Movement, were committed to the idea that art had the power to heal a society dehumanized by industry and mechanization. The artists’ works demonstrate a spectrum of experimental practices and are Britain’s first modern art response to industrialization.
Their attention to detail, use of vibrant colors, and exploration literary themes and contemporary life, is gloriously evident in the paintings, watercolors, and superb examples of decorative art produced during the second half of the 19th century.
