DESCRIPTION

Garage’s special course History of Painting.  Accessible is designed for blind and visually impaired visitors.

Painting is one of the ancient arts which emerged almost with the man himself and over time has evolved from cave paintings to cutting edge movements of the twenty-first century. Therefore, we can trace the development of human mind via the history of painting throughout the existence of civilization. Any type of painting reflects the critical and aesthetic ideas of a particular era, meaning that by studying the history of painting we study history per se.

Completing the five-class course History of Painting. Accessible will allow participants to get acquainted with the key milestones in the development of painting, learn how visual representation of man has evolved from the Neolithic age until our time, and become familiar with some iconic masterpieces.

The acquired information will help participants to better understand historical contexts of particular artworks.

The audio description was produced by Vera Fevralskikh, a leading expert in audio description.
