Creative Connections Between Artists and Writers

The writings of Edgar Allan Poe influenced artists like Henri Matisse and Paul Gauguin to create paintings. Gertrude Stein once told Picasso that he abstracted art the way she abstracted her writing. Throughout history several famous writers and artists have influenced each other’s creations. This course will focus on the influences between pairs like: Eugene Delacroix and Charles Baudelaire, Auguste Rodin and Rainer Maria Rilke, Roger Fry and Virginia Woolf, Pablo Picasso and Gertrude Stein.  The class will be taught by Ann Wiker, MA, an artist, curator, lectuer and the director of Art Exposure.

This class is being presented by the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Johns Hopkins University in partnership with The Village at Rockville.  Classes are $120 for Village Residents/ Osher Members and $135 for Non Residents/Community Members.  To register, email or call 301-294-7047.

Note: Class will not be in session on 9/30 and 11/25.
