TULANE ART HISTORY SUMMER CLASSES IN PARIS! July 4 - August 2, 2020

Professor Michelle Foa teaches two courses in Tulane's 4-week summer program in Paris (July 4- August 2). Each class is a full 3-credit course, and almost all of the class meetings take place in the city, rather than in a classroom.

 Impressionism

ARHS 3911: IMPRESSIONISM
PROF. MICHELLE FOA
3 CREDITS
Paris is the best place in the world to learn about Impressionism! Not only does it have the largest and best collections of Impressionist works, but we’ll be able to see first-hand the many sites that the Impressionists depicted in their images. In this class, we will explore the work and careers of central Impressionist and Post-Impressionist artists such as Degas, Renoir, Monet, Van Gogh, and others, by studying their works in person in museum collections and special exhibitions throughout the city. Some of the museums that we will visit are the Musée d’Orsay, the Musée de l’Orangerie, and the Musée Marmottan Monet. We will also take a trip to see Monet’s beautiful house, gardens, and water lily pond in Giverny.

 Art, Montmartre, and the Pleasures of Paris

ARHS 3913: ART, MONTMARTRE, AND THE PLEASURES OF PARIS
PROF. MICHELLE FOA
3 CREDITS
This class will explore the various forms of pleasure and entertainment that were an essential part of Paris’s identity in the later 19th century and analyze different artists’ and writers’ representations of these Parisian pleasures. We’ll pay particular attention to the world of Montmartre, a center of the city’s pleasure industry and its modern art scene. We’ll study the work of some of the key artists of the period and visit some of the entertainment sites and activities that these artists featured in their work. Class outings will include visits to a Montmartre cabaret, the Montmartre Museum, later 19th-century artists' studios, the Eiffel Tower, the Museum of Fashion, and the Garnier Opera House, among activities.

Program-wide excursions include a 3-day trip through northern France, a visit to a chateau outside of Paris, and a dinner cruise down Paris’s Seine River, among others.
