In the last of a 3-part series, we will look at the continuing influence of Giuseppe Arcimboldo on contemporary artists. We will explore the ideas of transformation and double meaning in the fascinating works of artists like Shigeo Fukuda, a Japanese artist and designer who has created amazing works including a series of provocative shadow art pieces. We will also look at Arcimboldo-inspired works by Hungarian artist Istvan Orosz, contemporary Mexican Surrealist Octavio Ocampo, and others.

Great Women in Art History: Louise Elisabeth Vigee LeBrun

Learn about this remarkable French painter who was one of the few women of the 18th and 19th centuries in Europe to have a successful career in painting. Vigee LeBrun was the portraitist of Marie Antoinette, but, unlike her famous patron, survived the French Revolution and went on to have a career painting portraits of European aristocrats and artists well into the 1800’s. We will look at Vigee LeBrun’s most famous portraits and discuss her lively self-portraits, which were surprisingly controversial at the time. Ann Shifflet from Columbus College of Art and Design presents.
