Monday at The Met—Vixens, Virgins and Vistas: Varieties of Experience in French Art

For Members with Opening Nights and Patrons Sold Out

Page Knox, educator

This class is sold out.

From cathedrals to Corbusier, Marie Antoinette to Marie-Thérèse Walter, and Claude Lorraine to Claude Monet, art in France has continued to delight, instruct, and challenge audiences throughout the ages. This eight-session course, which will begin with the 11th-century School at Chartres and conclude with the 20th-century School of Paris, examines the wide range of artistic experiences in France. In its exploration of the varieties of experience in French art, the class will delve deeply into The Met collection and also take advantage of two premier exhibitions on view this spring: Visitors to Versailles (1682–1789) and Public Parks, Private Gardens: Paris to Provence.

Eight Mondays, 10 am–2:30 pm
