Related Programs - Expressionism in Germany and France: From Van Gogh to Kandinsky
Noted art historians and scholars convene in this two-day symposium on the occasion of the exhibition Expressionism in Germany and France: From Van Gogh to Kandinsky to shed new light on the extraordinary response of artists in Germany and France to key developments in modern art in the early 20th century.
For the first time in a major museum exhibition, LACMA presents Expressionism not as a distinctly German style, but as an international movement in which artists responded with various aesthetic approaches to the work of modern masters. The German side of the story has been less well known in the United States until just recently. Sponsored by the museum and the Historians of German and Central European Art, topics presented explore in depth the relationship between French art and Germany artists, Cubism's impact, and the impact of non-Western art on European art from this era.
10am-4 pm Saturday; 10am-3 pm Sunday
Free and open to the public
Celebrate the Expressionist movement with wine. Enjoy a guided tour of Expressionism in Germany and France: From Van Gogh to Kandinsky, led by art historian and educator Mary Lenihan. Then embark on an oenophilic journey both classic and sauvage, beginning in rich Burgundy, heading south to the hot colors of Van Gogh's Provence, returning to the colder climes of the German-Burgundy border, and reaching a spectacular finale in Bordeaux, with a top Cru Classé. The four wines are paired with cheeses and artisanal regional specialties. Planet Wine's witty and wonderful Barbara Baxter introduces each wine, placing in cultural context a selection that edges between modern and classic.
