This blog is not the only thing that the painting students have been writing this term. Most students in Lacoste take at least one art history course. They are assigned a substantial amount of reading and I’ve heard so much about their research papers that I thought it might be interesting to create a list of topics from this term.
Severed Ties and Opened Eyes: Cézanne’s Isolation and the Advancements That Followed
Gaugin in Arles
Cézanne: Pushing Formalism
Vincent Van Gogh, Mad Genius in Arles
Religious Influence on Art
Vincent Van Gogh’s Influence on the Evolution of Art
From Infrastructure to Historical Treasure: The Legacy of Pont du Gard
Cézanne and Zola: Pursuing Greatness
The painting students reported that Professor Trittel noted that painters, as a group, received the highest grades on their papers. I have yet to confirm that directly with Professor Trittel!
