French Art (April 3)

French art has been renowned throughout the centuries for its elegance and inventiveness. In this overview of French masterworks in the collection of the Cleveland Museum of Art, explore everything from luxury goods made for the dukes of Burgundy prior to the Renaissance to shimmering paintings by Impressionists to colorful compositions by the Fauves.

Spanish Art (April 17)

This program features paintings by artists working from or born in Spain. Renaissance, Baroque, and modern Spanish art offer a varied stylistic range to participants, who also learn about the cultural and historical context of the works highlighted. Many of the artists—El Greco, Goya, and Picasso, for example—are among the best known in western art history and may already be familiar to the students.

German Art (April 24)

Discover luxurious sacred items, manuscripts, armor, and prints all made by German artists and craftspeople. From medieval treasures to Meissen porcelain to contemporary paintings, this presentation introduces the art of Germany in the CMA’s collection, which includes works by Albrecht Dürer, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Paul Klee, and numerous others.
