Art Forum: Anthea Callen
Wednesday, 24 September 2014 at 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Roland Wilson lecture theatre, McCoy Cct, ANU
Anthea Callen's lecture considers some of the issues raised in her new book, 'The Work of Art: Plein air painting and artistic identity in nineteenth-century France'. Outlining the reasons for the rise to prominence of landscape painting as a genre in nineteenth-century France, she looks especially at questions of gender identity and why so few of these painters were women. Arguing that the naturalist impulse to work outdoors, before the actual landscape motif, entailed new methods and practices that effectively excluded women, she will show how landscape art became associated with masculinity and male virility. She will focus on the painting of Gustave Courbet (1819-1877) and the Impressionists.
