Painting with acrylics: art inspired by art

Tuesday from 19:15-21:45 h

Lyda Bekker
Imagery: De dood van Marat van JL David uit 1793 en de reactie hierop van Reinier Lucassen zo’n 150 jaar later

For whom
All levels welcome

Over the centuries, there has been plenty of quotes in the visual arts. I use a number of examples to show how this is done and how varied it is. We look, among other things. after the painting: The Death of Marat from 1793 by Jacques Louis David, which has been frequently reused, I also show that Daan van Golden and Robert Zandvliet quote richly from art history. In this short course you choose 1 or 2 paintings from before 1800, you take a postcard or print with you in the first lesson. The painting is your source of inspiration to give your own (painter's) reaction to it. We build the lessons by making color and sketch studies of the painting, but after that it comes down to your imagination and the experiment to shape your reaction to the painting you have chosen.

Materials are present during the lessons.

Lyda Bekker studied at the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. She also studied for several months in New York at the School of Visual Arts. She works as an artist and teacher.
