Artwork of Picasso and Duchamp
Tinguely and Niki de Saint Phalle
Picasso is considered the single most important artist of the 20th century. His work will be the focal point of this course. Major developments in modern art, beginning with Cubism and including Expressionism and Surrealism, will be studied in the famous collections of the Pompidou Center Museum. Students will also explore the works of other artists such as Matisse, Braque, Kandinsky, Magritte, and major painters of today. Lectures and discussions will be based on paintings and sculptures in the various museums and galleries visited during the course.

A field study course packs all of the 48 contact-hours of other courses into adventure-filled days on location, so you can earn one to three credits at an accelerated pace. In addition, rather than taking place in an education center, a field study course takes place in a historical European city where the subject being studied has its roots. You will visit historical sites and museums as well as participate in lectures that bring it all together for a one-of-a-kind learning experience.
