Joan Jacobs' Art Talk
Artis—Naples Lifelong Learning

Why did Claude Monet provoke a scandal? What was outrageous about Marcel Duchamp’s ready-mades? How did Andy Warhol change art? Myriad revolutionary efforts formed the ideas of Modern Art and fundamentally changed our way of looking at the world. This lecture will discuss the work of these and other modern artists who dramatically influenced art as well as later generations of artists.

This presentation is part of lecturer Joan Jacobs' complete Art Talk series.
